Commissioning of the new £73m power plant near Craigellachie in Speyside, has just commenced. Developed by Estover Energy, the plant will generate enough power to supply over 20,000 homes as well as the famous Macallan whisky distillery. Stobart Biomass, which has a 12 year contract to supply the fuel once commissioning is complete, made it's first delivery of forestry material recently to the plant.
Scania (Great Britain) Limited has won an order for more than 2,000 trucks from Eddie Stobart and its associated companies, including A. W. Jenkinson Forest Products. This represents Scania's largest ever order in Europe. Due for delivery over a two-year period commencing March 2016, the deal will involve many Scania UK dealers, both in terms of vehicle supply and repair and maintenance operations.
