Sheffield-based Fulcrum, the energy and utilities provider, has secured its first biogas contract and has begun work on a one mile pipeline.
The project, which is being carried out on behalf of main contractor Burrell & Sons, involves installing a pipeline from a £12m biogas plant to the UK distribution network at a site in Welbeck Colliery, Nottinghamshire.
Four engineers will be based at the colliery during the project, which is expected to take 11 weeks.
Fulcrum designs and installs gas and utility infrastructure to homes and businesses.
In the biogas service the process is reversed with gas fed into the UK network.
