Consulting, engineering a project development company Hatch and SunGas Renewables, a wholly owned subsidiary of GTI International, have entered into a strategic alliance to accelerate the deployment of SunGas’ biomass gasification systems.

The alliance will see both companies contribute technical expertise, engineering capabilities, and market knowledge. 

Through the partnership Hatch will also assist SunGas provide customers with value and predictable delivery, as well as critical support through project lifecycles.

“We see this alliance as an important step of SunGas to effectively and efficiently serve a growing market, combining our gasification technology heritage with a reputable global engineering company,” said Vann Bush, President of SunGas Renewables.

“Hatch has a deep bench of seasoned practitioners for the design and deployment of energy systems that are aligned with our company’s vision of being the premier provider of biomass gasification systems across the globe.”

SunGas gasification systems are based on pressurised fluidised bed technology originally developed by the Gas Technology Institute (GTI), a technology that has been deployed commercially around the globe.

The technology platform generates syngas from woody biomass, the critical first step in the large-scale production of renewable, low-carbon fuels and chemicals.

Robert Francki, Hatch’s Global Managing Director of Energy, added, “The work that GTI and SunGas are doing to create the technology enablers to dramatically reduce carbon emissions and turn the tide on climate change suits society’s pressing needs.”

“We are proud to partner with SunGas and contribute our unique capability to engineer integrated, technologically advanced and sophisticated facilities and our deep custom equipment design skills.”
