Danish offshore and engineering company Semco Maritime has announced that it has gained a DKK 25m (USD 4.6m ) order for a power station in El Salvador. The project is unique in that the power station will be fuelled by biogas, reports financial daily newspaper Børsen.
 
"The facility will use heat generated by a waste disposal site and is our first project  overseas based on biogas," says Semco director Hans Henrik Andersen, who adds that the project will serve as a good reference since many countries in Central America and on other continents are looking at how they can use waste for electricity production.
 
Renewable energy is a growing business for Semco Maritime, which also supplies infrastructure for offshore wind farms under construction as well as service and maintenance agreements for existing ones.
 
In addition to infrastructure for power stations and offshore wind farms, the oil and gas sector continues to be a growth area for Semco Maritime. The company recently announced its entry in a new business area  for rebuilding of special vessels that will be used for stimulation of oil and gas pockets to increase their degree of extraction. Semco Maritime has landed its first order for rebuilding a Norwegian ship which will give employment to up to 100 people.
 
Semco Maritime is headquartered in Esbjerg, a port city on the North Sea coast, which is the base of a range of companies offering products and services for the offshore and wind energy industries.
