Robert Kennedy has been a pioneer of renewable energy since 2007. He is the owner of Strathendrick Biogas in Balfron, Glasgow and runs an AD plant at Claylands Farm, one of the UK’s first RHI-funded biogas plants.
Strathendrick Biogas selected Amur to help fuel the system. The plant has feedstock for the AD process on its doorstep from dairy farm cow slurry (supplied by the farmer), some grass silage and then a range of feedstocks supplied by Amur including distiller’s draff and pot ale syrup from local whisky distilleries.
I’ve always been involved with renewables and I really like doing business with Amur. The team has a strong renewable vision and recognises that nothing should be going to waste. There’s a lot of commonality between us, and the feedstocks they supply me with are of great quality. This means that the slurry and manure we make use of from the farm are perfectly complemented to provide maximum efficiency. It makes the whole operation much more viable knowing that I’ve got a reliable source of feedstock coming in regularly.
Part of my funding requirement when I was establishing the plant was to find a supplier capable of providing an agreed quantity of high quality feedstock. After building up a relationship with Amur from the start they’ve never failed to deliver. I’m happy to say I have a long-term contract with them which suits our needs perfectly.
