In Brief

Energy park proposal
Cory Riverside Energy and Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) have announced a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) to continue the preparation for the Riverside Energy Park proposal. HZI, which delivered Cory’s existing Riverside Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) in Belvedere, South East London, will act as the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor for the project. Construction is targeted to begin in 2021, subject to planning approval, and the energy park is expected to be fully operational by 2024. The new plant will comprise a range of integrated, low carbon technologies including waste energy recovery and anaerobic digestion.

New acquisition
In an acquisition that will continue to strengthen its energy procurement offer, Inprova Group has acquired Energy & Carbon Management (E&CM). E&CM provides energy broker and consultancy services, such as commercial gas and electricity procurement, energy risk management and consumption measurement and analysis. Paul Kennedy, Inprova Group Chief Executive, said: “We have now made five acquisitions in the past couple of years or so and we continue to look at opportunities that will add scale, capacity and capability into our business.”

Platform contract
Tulip Oil Netherlands Offshore B.V. has awarded Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) an Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) contract for the Q10-A unmanned offshore platform. Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO of Heerema Fabrication Group, noted: “We will perform the full platform FEED and EPCI in one continuous program, rather than the traditional multi-stage approach. This enables a fast-track delivery programme, resulting in lower execution risk.”
