Stallingborough CHP

In 2011, px Group was appointed to manage the operations and maintenance teams at Stallingborough CHP plant. The long term contract secured the future for the 11 employees at the power plant, and the successful transfer from the incumbent O&M provider to px Group ensured that the existing skills and site knowledge were retained.
