Relentless focus on operational excellence
As a power generator, Infinis has adopted an operational philosophy aimed at maximising the reliability of its biogas, onshore wind and hydro plants to deliver a reliable output to its commercial offtakers.
With landfill gas (LFG) plants, which provide electricity on a base load basis, this starts with the gas field monitoring and balancing processes which enable Infinis to maximise the extraction of LFG from approximately 12,000 gas wells under management while ensuring optimal compliance with environmental regulations. Infinis also runs the largest fleet of LFG engines in the world (approximately 350 gensets) which are subject to rigorous maintenance and overhaul procedures. Both gas field monitoring and engine servicing are predominantly carried out in-house and we provide extensive ongoing training to both gas field and engine technical teams who make up approximately 75% of our 400 employees. We closely track the progress of monthly gas conversion and engine performance KPIs which form the basis for continued improvement efforts of our field teams.
For onshore wind farms and hydro facilities, which are intermittent in nature, our operational focus is to keep the wind and hydro turbines optimally maintained to ensure availability levels above 97%.
Finally, the investment in our best in class 24/7 Logistics Centre at our headquarters in Northampton has enabled us to constantly monitor the environmental compliance and output performance of our LFG, onshore wind and hydro generating plants.
