Renewable Energy Infrastructure Awards 2011 CSL Wins Project of the Year

CNG Services Ltd (CSL) is thrilled to announce they have won the New Energy Infrastructure Project of the Year award 2011. The accolade, presented by Minister of State for DECC Charles Hendry, was awarded for the innovative Didcot Biomethane to Grid (BtG) project which CSL instigated in 2009 and acted as designer and project manager leading to first injection in October 2010

Didcot was the first BtG project in the UK and represents an important milestone in the development of UK renewable energy. It proved that biomethane injection into the UK gas grid is possible and helped to identify significant opportunities to reduce the capital and operating costs, making it easier for future BtG projects to go ahead.

CSL Managing Director John Baldwin said: “the award reflects a team effort involving ourselves, Scotia Gas Networks, Thames Water and Centrica and, with the RHI coming into force from 1 st December 2011, will help to develop many similar projects. We believe around 40 BtG projects will go ahead in the next 4 years, offering a significant benefit to the environment due to high efficiency utilisation”.

CSL was also highly commended in the Best Use of Biofuels category for their Biogas to CBM (compressed biomethane) trials. CSL developed a program to demonstrate the concept of small scale biogas clean-up and upgrading to produce vehicle grade CBM as an alternative to diesel fuel. The trial proved that CBM as a vehicle fuel can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by around 80% compared to diesel and represents a truly sustainable alternative to fossil fuel powered vehicles.
