Advanced Methanol Amsterdam (AMA)

At a Glance

px Group has been appointed as Operator at GIDARA Energy’s flagship Bio-Methanol plant in Amsterdam.

The plant, which is due to become operational in 2024, is GIDARA Energy’s advanced biofuels facility and will convert non-recyclable waste into advanced methanol. Known as Advanced Methanol Amsterdam (“AMA”) it is located in the BioPark, an industrial location in the Port of Amsterdam developed especially for producers of renewable fuels.

Advanced Methanol Amsterdam will produce Bio-Methanol that creates significant carbon savings compared to fossil-based fuels.  Advanced methanol is a versatile renewable transportation fuel that, amongst others, can be used in the road transport, marine and aviation sectors, helping these sectors to reduce their carbon emissions and become more sustainable.

  • AMA will produce an average of 87,500 tonnes of advanced methanol per year
  • It will convert non-recyclable waste equivalent to that of 29,000 households yearly
  • It will create significant carbon savings compared to fossil-based fuels
  • Advanced methanol is a versatile renewable transportation fuel that can be used in the road transport, marine and aviation sectors,
  • It will help these sectors to reduce their carbon emissions and become more sustainable.

px Group has previously supported GIDARA Energy in the FEED (Front End Engineering Design) phase of the project. It will ultimately take on the Operations and Maintenance (O&M) of the AMA plant, proving its capabilities across whole project lifecycles.

With the potential for an expanded scope in the future, px Group will initially be:

  • Supporting GIDARA Energy during the construction of the plant
  • Supporting the start-up and commissioning of the facility
  • Managing the Operations and Maintenance (O&M) of the facility following handover
  • Taking on responsibility for recruiting and managing more than 50 full-time staff in Amsterdam

px Group has also registered a Dutch entity, px Netherlands BV, for this project and anticipated future project work with GIDARA at other key industrial locations in the Netherlands.
