Established in late 2014 Tri Counties Biogas is based in Andover on the Apsley Estate, close to the on site 5.5MW AD plant. In response to a requirement from the plant for a year round supply of high quality feedstock the business was set up to fulfil this need. Set up in partnership between Steve Shutler and Daniel Chippendale the business has invested in a fleet of modern machinery including one of the country first John Deere 8600i forage harvesters supported by a number of new trailers and high capacity silage trailers.
The business benefits from an experienced and committed workforce allowing jobs to be carried out professionally and efficiently. With all employees based locally comes an abundance of local knowledge, simplifying logistic challenges.
The business aims to cut over 110,000 tons of feedstock this year, all destined for the AD plant. An exciting future lays ahead with plans to increase annual tonnage harvested whilst investing in the UK's first fleet of lorries run on 100% CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) as produced by the AD plant.
