There’s heat recovery systems. There’s investigation looking into hydrogen products. There’s electric heaters department which is growing in volume. The growth that we’re experiencing in our heater work and the opportunity to assist in decarbonising and in reducing emissions it’s a good thing. It’s an exciting stage for Gasco.

So on this project I helped actually design the unit as well as go through it with our drafting department, so helped review drawings, review datasheets, calculations and so on, and making sure we have materials in a timely manner, organising the timeline, project scheduling etcetera, to make sure that the project’s delivered efficiently and on time.

We go into industries that are looking to replace existing gas burning things like water-baths where they’ll pull the gas burner out and replace the water-bath with an electric system. So they’ll achieve the heating of gas they need to achieve without burning the gas.

What’s exciting me about it is just how renewable we actually are turning into. Because the industry is growing so much, you know, we are so busy here, it’s just enabling us just to, yeah, push on with our sustainable footprint and really preparing us for the future.
