PM PROjEN to upgrade Greenergys newly acquired sites
Greenergy Fuels Ltd, the UK’s fastest growing independent fuel supplier have contracted PROjEN, the award winning Cheshire based Project Management Company to upgrade two of its latest acquisitions.
The Mayflower and Cattedown sites acquired from Conoco Phillips which are located on the Plymouth coast will both receive a refurbishment ensuring compliance with both environmental requirements and Buncefield recommendations.
This HSE and Environment Agency driven upgrade will take place over an 18 month period allowing for operations to continue at both of the sites.
The proposed investment by Greenergy will allow for greater reliability and efficiency and will see the capacity of the sites almost double. In addition to becoming more environmentally friendly, the sites will also aid the supply of fuel to the South West of England, which is historically subject to high prices due to under supply.
PROjEN will project manage the upgrade which includes the demolition of existing storage tanks, the addition of new tanks, a new Control System which will incorporate a ‘state of the art’ safety system and the installation of new loading racks for increased road transportation. All fuels will be appropriately blended with biofuels as part of the facility upgrade.
Speaking today, PROjEN’s Key Account Director, Martin Seabrook said “We are delighted that Greenergy have chosen PROjEN to project manage the upgrade of their latest investment. We already have a successful history of working with Greenergy. At their Immingham Site; we constructed a new 100,000 tonnes per annum biodiesel processing plant and due to its unprecedented success we were awarded the European Construction Industry (ECI) ‘ Project of the Year 2008′. Greenergy’s desire to use our expertise again at their Mayflower and Cattedown sites only goes to show the trust they have in our award winning ability.”
