A SHEFFIELD company’s work on helping a coal-fired power station switch to renewable fuel has won it a gold safety award.

Darnall-based Geo Robson & Co is working on three projects which will allow Drax Power Station in North Yorkshire to start burning renewable biofuels.

Robson has designed, manufactured and supplied the biomass handling conveyors, which it is currently installing at the plant to meet strict timescales.

The company has been presented with the Gold Award for Contractor Safety Excellence for contractors who spent up to 25,000 man-hours on the project during 2012.

Robson’s health and safety manager Simon Spurr was presented with the award at a Drax safety conference.
