Landfill Gas (LFG) and Anaerobic Digestion (AD)biogas

As a pioneering leader of an infant UK landfill gas industry, Nick managed the development of 5 landfill gas companies which involved securing contracts, planning consents, environmental permits plus designing, installing, operating and maintaining all aspects of the projects. This included the recruitment and development of the necessary teams and infrastructure to run the businesses in order to minimise support from external sources.

Nick instigated the use of highly mobile equipment, minimising investment in non-moveable assets and established the market for highly successful small scale containerised generating sets and introduced a hire fleet into the UK industry.

Nick developed the design brief for Ener-G’s standardised containerised generating sets (both standard and small scale), which could be adapted for both cold and hot climate use. This included building in many safety features which ultimately reduced operating costs and increased availability.

Using this experience we offer invaluable advice on all aspects of the design, installation and operation of landfill gas systems and project development of power generation facilities, including the operation and maintenance of generation plant.
