px Group, leading infrastructure solutions business and operator of several critical UK energy sites, has been appointed as operator of Dutch technology company, Gidara Energy’s flagship bio-methanol plant in Amsterdam.

Plans for the plant were announced last year and it is due to become operational in 2024. The advanced biofuels facility will convert non-recyclable waste into advanced methanol. The plant is known as Advanced Methanol Amsterdam (AMA) and is located in the BioPark, Port of Amsterdam.

AMA will produce bio-methanol that creates significant carbon savings compared to fossil-based fuels. Advanced methanol is a versatile renewable transportation fuel that, can be used in the road transport, marine and aviation sectors, helping these sectors to reduce their carbon emissions and become more sustainable.

px Group has previously supported Gidara Energy in the FEED (Front End Engineering Design) phase of the project. It will now take on the operations and maintenance (O&M) of the AMA plant. px Group will: support Gidara Energy during the construction of the plant, support the start-up and commissioning of the facility, manage the O&M of the facility following handover and take on responsibility for recruiting and managing more than 50 full-time staff in Amsterdam.

Neil Grimley, px Group’s Managing Director of Gidara projects, says: ‘I’m looking forward to continuing what is now an extremely close relationship with Gidara. We’ve already been working with them on the ground in the Netherlands through the FEED stage, and we’ll now be taking on even more responsibility in the coming months.’
