Case Study

Biogas Plant Pliening

As a leader in the German renewable energy market, the opportunity arose to save the award-winning Pliening biogas facility. Pliening is the oldest biomethane facility in Germany and it was a rescue mission that we were excited to take up.

Located in Bavaria, the plant creates natural gas and has a feed-in biomethane capacity of 485 Nm3 biomethane per hour (equalling around 5,300 kW), which makes an annual output of approximately 45 GWh.

Unfortunately, the previous owners could no longer continue with the plant as they were unable to keep up with its maintenance requirements. Through our raw material supply, we were already involved with Pliening and were able to quickly step in to save the plant.

Bioenergy Plant Meden Vale

Meden Vale, the former Welbeck colliery site in Nottinghamshire, was our first design and build biogas project in the UK.

The site was identified as having excellent potential for a biogas facility and we joined the project with co-developer AcrEnergy just as it was getting off the ground. Time was of the essence and a key challenge was to bring the facility online in time to meet the deadline for the UK Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).  

In just 18 months, we developed the design, secured planning approval, constructed and brought the plant online.
