FEG Global Awarded Contract for International Sustainable Factory Design with WhatIF Foods
North-East based Engineering Project Management company FEG Global has won the WhatIF contract for the design and feasibility phase of a new, sustainable factory in Tamale, Africa.
A co-production facility, the site is as innovative as it is sustainable, using a self-sufficient model that co-generates its own energy through the pyrolysis process and use of agri-waste to create Biochar. As well as the sophisticated energy recovery operations, the site brings further positive environmental impact through acting as a community hub in its local town of Tamale, creating hundreds of jobs for direct employees and support services.
FEG Global Managing Director Chris Williams said...
The WhatIF factory will produce various food products through the processing of bamnuts, including milk, milk powder and noodles. The discarded bamnut shells will go directly into the energy-production process of the plant to produce some 39GWh per annum by 2030 and become a entirely self-powering facility.
Key to the awarding of the contract was an understanding of how to design a site that could maintain the varying balance between food production and energy requirements within the daily processes, something that the engineering team at FEG Global were happy to work on with many years of both food production design and heat recovery under their belts.
