Ipswich MP Sandy Martin has visited one of the town’s major employers to learn more about its role in the renewable energy market.

During a tour of Haven Power, based on Ransomes Europark and part of the Drax Group, Mr Martin met with senior staff including chief operating officer Paul Sheffield and several of the firm’s 450 employees.

Haven Power is a retail business offering renewable energy to both small and medium-sized enterprises and large businesses.

Mr Sheffield said: “Haven Power was established in Ipswich over 10 years ago, because of the supportive business environment and strong community spirit.

“It’s heartening to meet a dedicated MP like Sandy Martin, who has a track record of standing up for environmental and climate issues. We were delighted to have the opportunity to introduce him to our employees and hear more of his plans for his time in office.”
