PROjEN Leads The Way At National Anaerobic Digestion
PROjEN, a specialist engineering project management company, based in Preston Brook, Cheshire, took centre stage at the annual Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham.
The event attracts the biggest names in the anaerobic digestion (AD), biogas and process industries and PROjEN was invited to chair seminar sessions over the two days and run the farming consultancy stand where it provided free consultancy to farmers considering developing on-farm AD plants. The sessions held by PROjEN included ‘feedstock pre-treatment’, ‘ensuring high standards of operation’ and ‘training and safety’.
The company was also able to introduce existing and potential new clients to all aspects of the design and build process including planning and permitting, detailed design, construction, commissioning and training aspects. As well as project management and design and build services, the company exhibited supplementary services such as DSEAR/ATEX support, functional safety, laser scanning/3D visualisations and Hazop chairing.
PROjEN’s BioEnergy Manager, Shane Pugh, said: “This is the second time PROjEN has attended the ADBA exhibition, which is growing in popularity year on year. We were delighted to see a huge increase in the number of people who attended and that the focus was how the UK is developing in terms of AD and Biogas projects.
“At PROjEN, project management is our day job and we have more than 30 years’ experience of process plant design and build. Along with our leading AD and biogas knowledge and our lack of ties to any particular technology, we’re able to offer a flexible, innovative and effective approach which clients appreciate. ”
PROjEN’s Managing Director, Martin Seabrook, said: “Since 1978 we have been involved in thousands of projects and our reputation is second to none in both project delivery and health and safety.
“We were delighted to be at the show and found the number and quality of enquiries to be better than most other exhibitions we’ve experienced. The AD and biogas industry has really raised its profile in the last couple of years and the number of installations is set to increase rapidly – it’s now being seen the ‘no-brainer’ solution to our energy and waste treatment needs.”
