Why Choose Orbital?

Orbital built the very first UK Bio-methane to Grid system and continues to lead this market for technology and quality.

In September 2010, Orbital installed the gas monitoring and treatment plant on the UK’s very first large scale bio methane production facility. This site was designed specifically for generating bio methane for injection into the existing gas network. The facility at Didcot, Oxfordshire, generates bio methane by the anaerobic digestion of waste from the on-site sewage plant. Since that first installation we have continued to supply Bio-methane to Grid systems for various producers all over the UK.

In addition to our work in the Bio-methane market, Orbital has been involved with gas quality measurement, fiscal metering and odourisation of natural gas streams for many years, all of which are vital activities to allow Bio-methane to enter the UK natural gas network.
