Deal struck to help drive forward energy from waste projects

Bingley-headquartered Powerhouse Energy Group, (PHE) which develops technology to convert waste into low carbon energy, has signed a Framework Services Agreement with Petrofac Facilities Management.

Petrofac will provide engineering design and supply chain development services on PHE’s pipeline of projects, including its Plastics to Hydrogen project at Protos.

Peel NRE Ltd has also confirmed Petrofac as the preferred delivery partner for the proposed construction of the facility at Plot 10b, Protos Energy Park, Chester.

Tony Gardner-Hillman, chairman of PHE, said: “We are pleased to announce this agreement, in relation to which PHE will be working with Petrofac to complete the design engineering of PHE’s projects.

“Petrofac is a renowned operator with extensive expertise in the energy space and we look forward to a long and successful relationship.”

Keith Riley, acting chief executive officer of PHE, said: “Signing the Framework Agreement with Petrofac is a very important step for PHE in the intended rollout of its projects.

“The agreement allows the two companies to work closely together and brings, to our projects, a significant depth of knowledge and breadth of skills within Petrofac as well as its extensive experience in the market, particularly with the supply chain.

“I think the way we have set up this agreement brings an exceptional partner on board to take forward our projects; that PHE has not had previously.”

Petrofac Facilities Management Limited is a subsidiary of Petrofac, an international service provider to the energy industry.

Jon Carpenter, vice president, New Energy Services, Petrofac, added: “We are thrilled to be selected as partner with PHE.

“We see gasification of waste as a key enabler for a net zero future. We look forward to deploying our engineering, project delivery and operational experience to drive their projects to success.”
