Amber Green Victus Powers Thomasson Farm with 500kW Biogas CHP Solution

Advancing Green Energy Production and Sustainable Farming in Shropshire
June 5, 2024 – Shropshire, England, UK

AmberGreen Victus, a leader in renewable energy solutions, has successfully implemented a 500kW biogas CHP system at Thomasson Farm. This strategic initiative is set to boost the farm’s energy efficiency and reduce its carbon footprint, marking a significant step towards a more sustainable future.

Thomasson Farm, which milks an impressive 27,000 cows, has a longstanding reputation for its dedication to sustainable farming practices. The introduction of the 500kW biogas CHP solution will allow the farm to convert organic waste into valuable energy, providing both electricity and heat. This not only reduces waste but also enhances the farm’s energy independence.

The installation of the CHP system was a significant logistical achievement, involving the use of a 250-ton crane to lift the engine into place. This state-of-the-art technology will enable Thomasson Farm to efficiently process the vast amount of agricultural waste produced by its large dairy operation.

“AmberGreen Victus is thrilled to partner with Thomasson Farm in their journey towards sustainability,” said Neil, O’Brien, Director at AmberGreen Victus. “Our biogas CHP solution is designed to optimise energy production and contribute to a circular economy. By transforming waste into energy, Thomasson Farm can further its commitment to environmentally friendly practices.”

The biogas CHP system will utilise agricultural waste produced on the farm, converting it into renewable energy. This energy will be used to power farm operations, with surplus electricity fed back into the local grid. The heat generated by the CHP system will be used for various processes within the farm, improving overall efficiency.

“We are excited about the installation of the biogas CHP system by Amber Green Victus,” said Rob Thomasson, Owner at Thomasson Farm. “This technology will not only help us reduce our environmental impact but also improve our operational efficiency. It’s a win-win situation for our farm and the broader community.”

Victus Energy Trading Limited is proud to announce the successful transition of ROC trading and PPA business for three 500kW Combined Heat and Power (CHP) generators to its dynamic trading platform. Two of these generators, based in County Tyrone, sought a partner with a deep understanding of the Anaerobic Digestion sector to consolidate their trading efforts and maximise profitability.  Meanwhile, the County Armagh-based operation required detailed advisory services to revitalise their project, leveraging Victus’s unique expertise.

In a strategic move to enhance their operational efficiency and profitability, three 500kW CHP generators have shifted their ROC trading and PPA business to Victus Energy Trading Limited. Victus, with its unparalleled knowledge and experience in the Anaerobic Digestion sector, make it the ideal trading partner for these generators.

Victus Energy Trading Limited’s proven track record and comprehensive expertise made them the obvious choice.
