Following a competitive tender process earlier this year, the Drax Group chose ClerksWell to deliver its new global corporate intranet, which has now been rolled out to all business units.
Drax Group plc is an innovative energy company that owns and operates the UK’s largest power station in Selby, North Yorkshire, typically providing some 8% of the UK’s electricity. A vital strategic asset, the Group has transformed itself into a predominantly biomass-fuelled electricity generator through its use of innovative technology and sustainably sourced wood pellets. The largest decarbonisation project in Europe is underway to provide the UK with cost effective, low carbon, and reliable renewable power.
The Group employs around 1400 people. Upstream in the supply chain, Drax Biomass Inc. in the US operates wood pellet plants for the self-supply of renewable biomass. At the other end of the supply chain, the Group’s retail arm, Haven Power, serves the electricity needs of a growing number of business customers. Billington Bioenergy supplies a growing base of UK customers who heat their homes and businesses with wood pellets.
ClerksWell delivered the intranet using EasyShare, an intranet-in-a-box product built on Microsoft SharePoint Online / Office 365.
