Encora Energy powers growth with Boston peaking plant work

An engineering and management services consultancy says it has powered up its growth potential after securing a six-figure contract on a £5 million energy scheme.

Encora Energy has supported the commissionining of a Lincolnshire gas-fired peaking plant.

Bosses at the Stockton-based firm say the deal has “fast-tracked its expansion”, adding it has allowed the business to recruit Mark Waller [pictured, below] as operations co-ordinator.

Known as ‘peakers’, the Lincolnshire plant – based in Boston – will run during periods of high electricity demand to balance the grid.



Andrew Normand, Encora Energy’s business development director, said: “As we transition to a green future, we need to ensure we have sufficient supplies of electricity when the wind doesn’t blow or the sun doesn’t shine.

“These peaking plants can fill this gap.

“And Mark’s vast experience will be vital as we continue our UK expansion by working on more of these peaking projects.”

Mark added: “My main role is having overall operational responsibility for the day-to-day management of all Encora sites with assistance from operations engineers.

“It’s something I’m relishing and excited to be part of.”
