German waste-to-energy specialist ETW Energietechnik has appointed CooperOstlund as its UK service partner. The agreement will see the latter provide gas engine servicing and maintenance for ETW’s renewable energy customers across the country.
ETW designs and manufactures highly efficient gas upgrading systems and combined heat and power (CHP) set-ups for biogas from waste-to-energy (WTE) plants across Europe, with a growing number of customer sites in the UK. As the local agent for ETW, CooperOstlund will offer a range of technical support services to keep engines and plant running at optimum efficiency – from milestone services and calibration, to remote monitoring, health checks and emergency call-outs.
Marco Weiss, managing director at ETW, comments: “We work closely with our customers to meet their precise energy generation requirements. Once designed, installed and commissioned, service support is critical to keep systems running at optimum levels, which makes it very important to have local technical experts on hand to help reduce any potential downtime and deliver maximum return on investment.
“We chose CooperOstlund as our UK service partner because of the company’s experience with both CHP and gas-to-grid (gas upgrading) technology, as well as the team’s fast response times, geographical coverage, excellent service and troubleshooting capabilities.”
Alongside scheduled servicing and maintenance, CooperOstlund will also provide 24-hour emergency support for ETW’s waste-to-energy customers, which include energy and gas suppliers, public authorities, agricultural and industrial businesses.
