Energy infrastructure company Fulcrum is to start building pipelines to connect biogas plants to the UK’s gas distribution network.
The move sees Fulcrum enter the renewables market, a departure from its core business of designing and installing infrastructure to enable homes and business to receive gas. Instead, it will feed biogas into the network. There are currently around 400 biogas plants in operation around the UK.
Fulcrum chief executive Martin Donnachie said: “Biogas is becoming an important part of the UK’s energy mix and there is real potential for it to take an even greater role in the future. Fulcrum is perfectly placed to support the growth of the industry by implementing our extensive gas infrastructure experience to the sector assisting existing operators and new market entrants with the construction and commissioning of new plant infrastructure.”
