Weltec Client Wins "AD Output Award" at prestigious Organics Recycling Awards

In late March, Weltec Biopower customer, Eco Sustainable Solutions Ltd. were awarded with the ‚The AD Output Award‘ at the prestigious REA Organics Recycling Awards for their Anaerobic Digestion facility in Piddlehinton, Dorset. The Weltec Biopower supplied biogas plant impressed the jurors with the best overall concept.

Weltec Biopower planned and built the facility, which was commissioned in 2012. The plant utilises 20,000 tons of food waste a year and generates an electrical output of 498 kilowatts per hour. The plant is fed by local authority collected food waste as well as out of date food products which prior to digestion are unpackaged, sorted and pasteurised at the site.


The energy usage of this plant is exemplary. The heat generated from the process is recovered and sent via a pipeline to be used at an adjacent feed mill. Electricity generated at the Weltec plant is also fed to the neighboring mill, when this is not operational, the power is fed to the National Grid. The digestate produced by the plant, which is in the process of gaining PAS 110 accreditation, is collected and used by local farmers. The jury of the award emphasized the innovative use of the plant's output by local businesses.

Eco Sustainable Solutions Ltd. are delighted with winning the award. Weltec Biopowers UK Sales Manager, Chris Jellett, commented after the award ceremony in late March in Oxfordshire "This award win for Eco Sustainable Solutions is a wonderful recognition to the team both on site and behind the scenes at Piddlehinton. Obtaining the ‚AD Output Award‘ shows that we are setting the benchmark in the UK biogas market."

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
