August 18, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Compact Power and AMEC have signed a contract to develop three waste or biomass to energy projects in the United Kingdom over the next five years. Equipment for and management of the thermal process that produces energy from waste and biomass will be supplied by Compact. AMEC is an engineering services company that will provide design, project delivery and support for the transport of oil and gas produced at the facilities. The first project will be in the town of Dumfries because Compact Power has a site and planning permission in place for a waste to energy facility. The project is planned to start in October 2004, with completion expected before the end of 2005.
