PROjEN, the specialist engineering project management company, based in Preston Brook, Cheshire has worked closely with Halton Haven Hospice for over 12 months to raise money for a decking area. The Hospice provides a range of services aimed at supporting patients at different stages of their illness. Services include a day hospice, physiotherapy, complementary therapy and family support services. The decking area, set in the woodlands surrounding the hospice has been hailed a success by patients and families since its arrival a few weeks ago.
Shaun Pollard, Director of Corporate Services at the Hospice says, “This is an excellent example of local companies working with the Hospice to improve the service we offer our patients and their families. PROjEN have been fantastic partners to work with and the result is a wonderful area for people to relax in the peace and tranquility of our woodlands.”
Fundraising events including a sponsored bike ride, Christmas party raffles and second hand book sales as well as staff and company donations over the past year stacked up to a staggering £6,000. PROjEN then created a decking area, with seating facilities that will accommodate the patients and families who enter the Hospice.
Martin Seabrook MD said. “It is fantastic to see the level of support and commitment from everyone at PROjEN throughout the lifecycle of this great cause in both raising money to fund the project and co-coordinating the build. I am delighted with the amount of time and money PROjEN and its suppliers have donated towards such a worthwhile charity”.
Contributors to the project include PROjEN, MRC Transmark, Artisan Measurement & Control Ltd, Enterprise Rent a Car, Safety Supply Company, Speedy Hire, Tyco Valves, Clancy Consulting & Atkins Vause the decking Installer.
The decking was officially opened by Dave Elliott (PROjEN Business Support Services Director) on August 2nd 2011 when PROjEN also donated £1000 to the Hospice. A cheque was presented to the Hospice’s Director of Corporate Services, Shaun Pollard by Procurement Manager Mark Warrington and Chairman John Taylor from PROjEN.
PROjEN is pleased to announce that they will be exhibiting at the RWM Exhibition to be held at the NEC, Birmingham between 13th and 15th September. Key members of PROjEN’s BioEnergy Division will be on hand to give details of the Company’s expertise in the planning, permitting, design and construction of a range of operating plants. These include facilities for the production of Bioethanol and Biodiesel as well as Biomass and Energy from Waste such as Biogas by Anaerobic Digestion.
PROjEN Ltd is based in Preston Brook and is a long established Project Management and Engineering business with an award winning reputation for the design and build of process plants which involve hazardous chemicals and gases. Using this experience as a base, the company has recruited a number of the UK’s leading BioEnergy experts and engineers who are responsible for the design and delivery of some of the UK’s most iconic BioEnergy projects.
The division is led by Shane Pugh who comments, “PROjEN’s decision to exhibit at this important show is based on the number of leads and business acquired through our attendance at the recent ADBA exhibition, also held at the NEC”. The RWM show includes the Anaerobic and Biogas audience but also serves the wider recycling and waste management sector. It is expected that there will be over 600 exhibitors with an estimated 10,000 visitors in attendance.
PROjEN’s Managing Director Martin Seabrook comments, “Historically we have not attended many exhibitions but we have been greatly impressed with the results from our decision to attend targeted exhibitions such as these. Already we he have won business on a number of sites throughout the UK and we are all looking forward to another busy and rewarding exhibition”
Following the launch of their new BioEnergy Division, PROjEN have now introduced a new dedicated website which highlights the Company’s BioEnergy expertise in the planning, permitting, design and construction of facilities for the production of Biogas, by Anaerobic Digestion, Biomass, Bioethanol and Biodiesel. The decision to launch both the BioEnergy Division and its own website were natural progressions in the Company’s evolution following many years association with the general energy market.

The division is led by Shane Pugh who comments, “PROjEN’s wide extent of services are utilised in a variety of industries and we felt that those involved in sectors such as Anaerobic Digestion, Biogas and Biofuels etc would be better served by grouping all our activities in these markets under one roof. The BioEnergy website (<a href=”http://www.projenbioenergy.co.uk”>www.projenbioenergy.co.uk</a>) follows the same clean lines as our main website but provides a more focused site those just wanting to see our capabilities in this market.”
Working with Shane is leading BioEnergy expert Dr Les Gornall who has over 30 years’ experience of building, operating, designing and commissioning anaerobic digesters and waste water treatment plants. He has become an internationally recognised environmental consultant who has extensive experience in waste and biogas issues across the world.
Les comments, “Anyone visiting the website will be able to see our credentials and our awards and also brief descriptions of the key members of the team. It also shows that although specialists in a range of technologies, PROjEN remain ‘Technology agnostic’, i.e. not tied in to any specific manufacturer. This flexibility allows the design and build of facilities which exactly meet the client’s requirements and allows a more integrated approach to be taken by using a combination of technologies to form ‘Energy Centres’.”
PROjEN’s Managing Director Martin Seabrook comments, “Our share of the BioEnergy market and its importance to our business is growing rapidly which makes for extremely exciting times for PROjEN. This website is another tool we are using to increase our profile and follows on from our presence at the recent ADBA Exhibition and also the RWM exhibition being held at the NEC in September.”
