UK AD & World Biogas Expo is twice as nice for Gen-C

Gas engine support specialist Gen-C is celebrating after sealing TWO deals in two days at UK AD & World Biogas Expo (3-4 July, NEC Birmingham). Taking prime position in the centre of the exhibition hall, Gen-C’s stand was the largest at the show this year and attracted hundreds of visitors, who flocked to see the range of CHP engines and control panels on display.
The first day of the show saw Gen-C’s Manging Director James Thompson secure a sale with Keith Ripper of Ripper AD for a 250 kW Scania-based Sandfirden CHP engine, to be installed within 10 weeks on Keith’s on-farm AD plant in Essex.
The success continued into day two, with a customer signing on the dotted line at the Gen-C stand for a Motortech control panel featuring ComAp technology, which will enable them to unlock and take full control of their CHP engine.
The show also proved the ideal platform for Gen-C to showcase its new biogas engine exchange programme, aimed at AD operators facing a major overhaul. Through its sister business LouwSon Energy Ltd, engine owners can exchange their existing CHP engine for a fully-serviced, zero-hours engine within just one week instead of the usual four – and save up to 50% on the usual servicing costs.
Visitors to Gen-C’s stand also learned of its flexible approach to regular servicing. As the exclusive UK stockist for Motortech, RS Motor and Sandfirden, the company can offer one-off services of MWM, Jenbacher and all major gas engines, saving AD operators thousands compared to lengthy, expensive, locked-in contracts offered by other service providers.
“We’ve exhibited at the UK AD & World Biogas Expo for several years, and this year our stand was bigger and better than ever,” says James Thompson. “The visitors didn’t stop coming, creating a real buzz on our stand. It was great to catch up with so many familiar faces, as well as make new contacts, but the icing on the cake for us was securing a major sale on each day.”
