UK infrastructure management company PX Group, which operates Northampton Fuel Terminal, Saltend Chemicals Park and various gas processing assets, has a new energy transition team.
PX Energy Transition is a dedicated team of staff which will use the company’s extensive expertise in infrastructure management to help new and existing customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy efficiency as they seek to decarbonise. It will also identify and execute industrial and energy transition opportunities.
Saltend Chemicals Park will soon host one of the UK’s first clean hydrogen plants as part of the Zero Carbon Humber partnership. With hydrogen a projected key fuel as part of the energy transition, PX Group says that this makes it one of the few infrastructure services companies with the necessary experience and knowledge to help customers deliver the industrial and energy transition efficiently and commercially.
PX Group is also involved in a number of other energy transition-related projects, including the MGT Teesside project, the world’s largest dedicated biomass plant, while Saltend will also soon be home to the Pensana rare earth separation facility, which will produce vital materials for wind turbines and electric cars. The blue hydrogen scheme, Project Acorn, is located at the St Fergus Gas Plant, which is operated by PX Group.
PX Energy Transition will be led by managing director David Henderson, a Chartered Electrical Engineer who was previously PX Group’s chief commercial officer.
‘Businesses are supportive of the energy transition, but they also need technical help to deliver reduced emissions on their sites. With our experience of developing cleaner energy, deploying the right technology, and owning and running some of the most important sites in the UK, we’re ideally placed to provide the help they need on every step of the energy transition journey,’ says Henderson.
