Renewable energy business relocates to new headquarters

Birch Solutions has completed a move to new offices which are powered by renewable energy produced from on-site biogas plants.

The company was formed after North Lincolnshire lime business Singleton Birch bought a controlling share of green energy company, PlanET Biogas UK, one of the world’s largest biogas technology providers.

The new headquarters are based at a purpose built £600k building at Singleton Birch’s Melton Ross site.

A new research and development centre, which will support the development of new products for Singleton Birch’s family of businesses, is also based within the building.

Contractors, including Britcon, Manta, John Maw, Whites Electrical and Ventair were all involved in the project, which was project managed by the Birch Solutions projects team.

Martin Haworth, director of Birch Solutions, said: “Research and development will be a key part of the Birch Solutions business going forward as we continue to offer biogas plant owners a fresh approach to services and consultancy.

“This will also complement our work with blue chip water companies which also use the anaerobic digestion process but as a water treatment rather than to produce energy.

“This investment is a sign of our commitment to deliver excellent support to our customers, especially biogas plant owners who are looking to get the best out of their systems.”

Singleton Birch was founded in 1815 and although it has diversified into a number of sectors, its core business remains the supply of chalk and lime products.
