Technica is continuing to build its strategic relationships across many different industry sectors including gas, petrochemicals and industrial automation and control.

Spanning two of these sectors, Palm Paper in Kings Lynn have chosen Technica to provide assistance in resolving existing software issues and then subsequently modify a PLC control system on their newly installed CHP system.

This is the second of two contracts from Palm Paper, the first being to provide urgent assistance to undertake an inspection of their cathodic protection system prior to Christmas last year. Earlier in the year, Technica also provided technical consultancy regarding aspects of their natural gas pipeline.

Director of Business Development at Technica, Richard Law stated “being agile, responsive and attentive to our client has enabled us to develop this excellent relationship with Palm Paper and I am proud of the way in which our engineers have responded”. He continued “this contract award demonstrates the many aspects of our capability which includes multi-disciplinary design, build, commissioning and the provision of maintenance services”.

Palm Paper commented “Technica have consistently provided timely, professional, accessible and cost effective engineering support to Palm Paper. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with their team”
