Chinook Sciences Expands its Presence at No.1 Nottingham Science Park
October 31st, 2011
Chinook Sciences is expanding its floor space at the ultra green No.1 Nottingham Science Park to provide room for growth, and plans to take on more than 20 additional skilled engineers.
The company moved to the landmark Science Park building, developed by specialist regeneration company Blueprint, a year ago. Now, the company is taking another 5,500 sq ft of Grade A office space on top of the 15,000 sq ft it already occupies.
It follows strong demand for Chinook’s industrial renewable energy technology RODECS®.
Harry Perry, Chinook Sciences Technical Director, said: “It is an easy decision to invest at the Science Park with the pool of talent available in the region, and combined with the quality of the current workforce, we will be able to grow and fully support Chinook’s wide ranging activity in the waste to energy field.”
The new office space will allow Chinook to increase the support it offers to its partner facilities by further upgrading the remote Command and Control station to the highest level of sophistication with a combined worldwide plant service and monitoring facility.
Further investment in personnel will complement the existing Nottingham-based engineering and project management group, adding further expertise in both thermal engineering and power delivery services.
Chinook Sciences Chairman and Co-founder, Dr Rifat Chalabi confirmed: “With the success of Chinook’s End-Stage-Recycling® concept and our continued penetration into European and emerging markets, Chinook Sciences is in an ideal position to take full advantage of the considerable technological leap that RODECS® technology has in supplying highly efficient and low cost, renewable energy."
“The RODECS® technology, with its three independent income streams, has shown tremendous resilience in the current economic climate, and continues to provide investors with attractive returns.”
John Long, development director at Blueprint, said: “We’ve worked hard at Nottingham Science Park to develop a community of genuinely leading edge innovators – some of the best in the region. Their continued success is a real pleasure to see as they excel here and expand.
“It’s good for the Park, of course, but more importantly it’s good for Nottingham – these businesses are creating sustainable, high quality jobs in large numbers.”
