However, to do so would necessitate the expansion of its core leadership and wider senior teams.
This would include the hiring of a Head of HR and Head of Business Performance to perform key people and commercial roles within a multi-faceted engineering organisation. In addition, a UK Procurement Manager was secured to develop the function and processes from scratch.
Furthermore, crucial to BIG’s growth was its delivery against major projects, namely the Levenset Renewable Energy Limited (LREL) project and at Energy Works Hull.
BIG is the largest shareholder in Energy Works Hull having invested £100m+ in the project, one which is entering the final stages of commissioning prior to being operational.
As BIG ramped-up its operational capability, BPS secured key Plant Manager, Operations Manager and Maintenance Manager personnel.
Meanwhile, the Levenseat Renewable Energy Limited (LREL) project consists of a c.12MW Energy from Waste (EfW) plant, made up of a Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) fed gasifier and an adjacent materials recycling facility (MRF). The project is at the late stages of commissioning and has the potential for further expansion through the development of a second adjacent EfW plant.
This complex project is being headed-up by additional partners in Zouk Capital and Levenseat Ltd with BPS successful in hiring a General Manager with the essential remit of implementing new contracts and optimisation projects where additional project value can be achieved such as private wire and heat offtake.
