Recent emissions monitoring work is helping to drive the development of renewable energy production and medical manufacturing, highlighting the benefits that this service can bring to two very diverse industry sectors.
“Over the last few months, we have been breaking new ground working on projects for a number of clients, both north and south of the border,” says Business Leader, Leon Youngs. “It is exciting to be involved in the growth of the UK’s green energy and also to be able to help grow business in Scotland.”
Leon’s emissions monitoring team’s work in the manufacturing sector, involved helping a healthcare solutions provider commission its new Scottish manufacturing plant.
“The client needed to address a number of environmental compliance issues,” Leon explains. “We worked to help them reduce their emissions to the atmosphere. This included chimney height calculations, hands-on testing and consultancy in filter choices and other abatement issues.”
The clean energy project involved delivering engineering consultancy for the pre-commissioning phase of a new energy from waste plant in the South of England.
“Our client was a large multi-national,” says Leon. “The work involved identifying monitoring positions for the plant’s commissioning trials, highlighting the places in the plant where long-term monitoring systems needed to be fitted and ensuring that all monitoring systems integrated properly with the plant’s central data acquisition system. We hope to continue the partnership with the client on the actual commissioning work for the plant.”
Another clean energy emissions monitoring project is set to take place later in the year in Scotland. This will involve consultancy and assessment work on a new, state-of-the-art recycling and renewable energy centre near Glasgow.
“We will be taking measurements and performing calculations on issues such as residence times for the gases within the centre’s gasification plant furnace. This will involve analysing the complete temperature profile of the furnace,” explains Leon. “To do the job, we will utilise equipment from our sister company TÜV SÜD AG in Germany. One of the key aims of the project will be to ensure that dioxin levels are kept within the correct parameters.”
