A one-stop-shop biogas division has been set up by project management and engineering group Projen.
The BioEnergy division will specialise in the planning, design and construction of facilities for biogas production by anaerobic digestion, biomass, bioethanol and biodiesel.
Projen has experience designing and building plants involved in hazardous chemicals and gases.
It has recruited a number of experts from the field including Dr Les Gornall, described as an “internationally recognised” environmental consultant with “extensive” experience in waste and biogas issues. Gornall will head up the new division alongside former Projen business development manager Shane Pugh.
Projen said its approach is “technology agnostic” and not tied to any particular technology or manufacturer, meaning it can have a flexible approach.
Projen managing director Martin Seabrook said: “Increasingly our customers comment on our innovative and collaborative approach to client relations setting us apart from our competitors.”
The 30 year-old company employs 100 people in total and aims to bridge the gap between smaller ‘one man band’ operations and the large multinationals.
