Ener-G grows UK CHP base in Salford

Sustainable power business Ener-G has opened a new UK factory in Salford to keep pace with global demand for its renewable and energy efficient technologies.
Ener-G grows UK CHP base in Salford
The move allows the company to increase production of its combined heat and power (CHP) and biogas generator units by 50% to meet orders from across the globe.

Last year the business doubled its original manufacturing space by opening a second factory in Salford and it has now trebled its original manufacturing space to 34,000 sq ft by converting an adjacent building.

Ener-G said it will train its factory team in lean manufacturing techniques to introduce smarter working practices and processes that will boost efficiency and ensure faster turnaround of customer orders. As such, initial growth will be absorbed by existing staff but new jobs will be created as production increases further.

The company will also recruit more service engineers to expand its 90-strong installation and maintenance team and a training centre is being built at the new site.

Ener-G's CHP systems create electricity and heat simultaneously and reduce carbon emissions by around 20% while cutting electricity costs by approximately one third. They can be powered by natural gas or renewable biogases. Ener-G has installed and operates in excess of 120MW of biogas generation, primarily from landfill gas.

Derek Duffill, group managing director, said 'Our innovative products and services are in demand across the globe, fuelling our ongoing growth and reflected in our turnover of £90M which has grown four-fold during the past six years.'
