Alkane Energy LV & HV Installation

Slaters is celebrating 8 years of a close working relationship with rapidly growing renewables company, Alkane Energy.

We were tasked with providing and installing all electricals from HV through to switchgear and control cabling, and from substation to grid. We also provided bespoke electrical projects from start to finish across more than 20 sites in Yorkshire, Staffordshire and Wales.

Alkane is a clean tech ‘Gas to Power’ energy company that uses underground methane to generate electricity.  It is the UK’s leading coal mine methane (CMM) producer with unrivalled expertise in the design, build and operation of methane gas fuelled power plants.  Alkane has 70MWs of installed electrical generating capacity covering CMM and power response.
Slaters also carries out all the electrical work for lighting and security cameras around the 20 sites.

Alkane has outsourced its maintenance agreement to Slaters for 24-hour coverage, 365 days a year.

Alkane's Chief Electrical Engineer, Keith Mitchell says:

Slaters respond immediately to my requests. If I need four men tomorrow to start a job or deal with HV problems, such as one of the main breakers tripping out, they can sort it at once, 24/7. I haven’t tried them on Christmas day yet, but I will do sometime! I don’t have to prep the work up; they understand what is needed quickly – from scratch. That experience and knowledge is invaluable.
