WIS Group is Northern Ireland’s largest process control, automation, instrumentation and environmental engineering company.

With over 30 years’ experience, the Group has an impressive track record supplying tailored solutions to the water, wastewater, agricultural, aerospace and industrial sectors.

With a strong track record over the past 30 years in the water / wastewater treatment and aerospace sectors, WIS groups expansion into the bioenergy market has been a huge success with a range of processes including large industrial and farm scale anaerobic digestion plants.

These plants range in size from just 75kWe to 5 MWe.

Having carried out considerable research on the bio-energy sector, WIS has developed a local bio-energy solution which has been designed to meet the needs of the UK and ROI markets and, with a performance that surpasses international competition.

The Group’s Renewable Energy division specialises in Energy from Waste projects, and designs and constructs high performance anaerobic digestion plants - offering a full EPC service (design, procurement and construction) and 24/7 local technical support.

WIS has designed its AD systems specifically for the UK and Ireland markets and, with a strong track record of projects across agriculture and industry, they are proven to outperform other European systems.

From energy efficient technologies to large scale AD plants, we provide agricultural, industrial and municipal organisations a strategic renewable energy solution.

WIS Group have the local knowledge and experience of building bespoke AD plants across Northern Ireland with five AD plants now successfully completed and running at full capacity and five more that will be completed by December 2015.

WIS designed, built and commissioned a 150kW on-farm anaerobic digestion plant for a mixed dairy and poultry farm, operating on a combination of poultry litter and cattle manure.

This AD plant is a one of a kind and the first and only 150 kW plant in Northern Ireland.

The electricity generated is used on farm and exported to the grid, and the excess heat from the CHP engine is channelled through a thermal store and used to heat two poultry houses – reducing the farm’s energy costs and increased environmental efficiency.

It is also creating an additional revenue stream, but also providing a sustainable outlet for poultry litter.

The Renewables team at WIS build their process to direct specifications of the customer, so it is tailor made for each individual situation.

For more information or to view the 150kw plant, come along to the open day at Taylors Farm in Finvoy at 21 Drumlee Road Finvoy, Ballymoney BT53 7LE on Saturday 4th July from 11am – 4pm.

The WIS Renewables team will be there to answer your questions and you will also get a chance to get a tour of the plant or telephone 028 9083999 and ask for the renewables team.
