Biomethane Gas to Grid Project delivery

Our client was in the process of developing a multi million pound Biomethane gas to grid anaerobic digestion plant. One of the challenges encountered by them was finding the correct technology providers, suppliers and contractors that can deliver the project in a 9 month period to ensure the RHI income can be secured prior to the planned digressions. This would mean designing a solution, engaging technology providers, placing orders and then going on to construct and commission works with an aim of securing the RHI in 50% of the time normally taken on a project of this nature.

Aqua where also appointed as the Biomethane gas to grid specialists responsible for ensuring all works associated with the DNO and Ofgem where identified and delivered on time

Aqua was engaged by our client to support the development of the project. This included identifying a phased solution for securing the RHI alone with identifying and appointing the specialist suppliers and contractors required to deliver the project. Aqua where also appointed as the Biomethane gas to grid specialists responsible for ensuring all works associated with the DNO and Ofgem where identified and delivered on time. In addition to this, Aqua also undertook the design and construct contract for all of the works associated with the gas injection connection to the national grid, the electrical grid connection works, all site HV / LV works and all temporary power arrangements which where required during the phasing of the works.

Securing the RHI before it was degressed by Ofgem was by far the biggest challenge for all of the stakeholders on this project. This was achieved with over 10 days to spare.
