SYSTRA offers project development and infrastructure design expertise for the energy sector – providing efficient, integrated and sustainable solutions for renewable, waste-to-energy and hydrogen infrastructure schemes.

Building the UK’s long-term energy infrastructure

Developing new energy generation, distribution and transmission infrastructure requires considerable expertise in complex engineering design, long-term planning, and infrastructure development, operation and maintenance. Developers, investors and delivery teams for new renewable energy projects, hydrogen infrastructure and electricity distribution and transmission systems face considerable environmental, regulatory, financial and technical challenges in delivering much-needed energy infrastructure.

SYSTRA has energy infrastructure design expertise across renewables, waste-to-energy and hydrogen projects. We have significant and ongoing involvement in energy infrastructure design, helping clients gain planning approvals, manage risks and deliver long-term energy solutions.

Lifecycle support for renewable and low-carbon energy

The energy infrastructure design specialists at SYSTRA provide whole lifecycle services for energy projects, from pre-planning and planning, through concept design and on to detailed design. Our teams also provide construction support for major energy infrastructure projects, as well as operations and maintenance expertise for the lifetime of any new facilities.

Planning and environmental approvals are significant hurdles for any new energy project. Our teams help to de-risk the planning process with our pre-planning support, providing environmental services and architectural expertise to meet the demands of local authorities and regulators.

Waste-to-energy – unrivalled experience in design-and-build solutions

SYSTRA has significant experience in the waste to energy market, delivering multiple projects over the past decade. We provide a truly integrated solution, delivering multi-disciplinary designs from the outset. The success of our projects is based on our in-depth understanding of client requirements at every stage of the project lifecycle, from concept to operations and maintenance. We enable close coordination between civil works design and process engineering design, which is critical to the success of complex waste-to-energy projects. We also apply our risk-management expertise to deliver designs that are efficient, proven and innovative.

Renewables – developing the UK’s carbon-free energy infrastructure

Our specialists support the development of multiple renewable energy projects, including wind and solar farms, biomass plants, marine and tidal schemes, energy storage and microgrid projects. We help clients to gain regulatory approvals, and secure suitable financing for these long-term projects. We develop technical solutions for the different renewable technologies, electricity transmission and infrastructure services, ensuring system reliability and resilience. Our project planning and management expertise ensures we deliver renewable energy projects on time, within budget and to the highest standards of safety and quality.

Hydrogen – building reliable new infrastructure safely and efficiently

We help clients to evaluate the performance and reliability of different hydrogen technologies to determine the optimum solution for their needs. The UK’s hydrogen infrastructure is in its infancy, but SYSTRA is at the forefront of new developments, helping to coordinate integration among stakeholders throughout the supply chain – from hydrogen production to fuel cell deployment. Our team helps clients assess the feasibility of hydrogen projects, evaluate solutions, develop business plans, and manage safety and risk.
