We're proud to announce we've picked up one award and one highly commended at this year's AD and Biogas Industry 2020 awards.
The awards, which are run annually, celebrate excellence and innovation in the global anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas sector.
Colin joined our Green Gas team in 2009 and played a key role in the UK’s demonstration biomethane project at Didcot, which has formed much of the learning the industry benefits from today. He has been at heart of several UK biomethane firsts, major milestones not just for SGN, but for the entire industry and has contributed to 73% of all biomethane projects in Scotland.
Commenting on his award win, Colin said:
“I’m delighted to have received this prestigious award at the World Biogas Expo, I think it recognises the fact that I have been in biomethane since the very first project in the UK and I’d like to think that I’ve contributed to the development of that part of our industry over the last 10 years. I couldn’t have been in this position if it wasn’t with the support of the great Green Gas team we have in SGN and this is as much their award as it for me personally. When I started in the industry in the early 1980’s there were no laptops and no mobile phones, you were lucky if you could use a pool van, a far cry from the virtual conference we attended last week and the use of high tech video meetings and workshops, the awards ceremony was a triumph of how far technology has advanced with people from all over the globe sitting watching and participating in the event from the comfort of their own home”.
We're also pleased to announce that our SGN Commercial Services team was 'Highly Commended' in the 'Best Biogas/AD Support' category for providing technical expertise, consultancy services, maintenance, support and project management services to many biomethane customers.
Commenting on the awards, Director, Commercial Services and Investments Marcus Hunt said:
"This is great recognition of Colin’s massive contribution to the success of biomethane gas to grid projects over many years and the broader team’s efforts in helping to secure and maintain SGN’s leading position in the market, a fantastic achievement!".
