TECHNICA ANNOUNCES COLLABORATION WITH UNIVERSITY OF LINCOLN 150 150 Technica Ltd

TECHNICA ANNOUNCES COLLABORATION WITH UNIVERSITY OF LINCOLN

Technica Energy, the sustainable energy sector of Technica, are pleased to announce the signing of a collaboration agreement with the University of Lincoln.

The agreement couples together Technica and Professor Chris Bingham, Professor of Energy Conversion at the University. Chris will act as a technical advisor on power systems and control issues related to the design and realisation of micro-grid systems using the Be-Wind vertical axis wind turbine. Working alongside Technica, Chris will ensure that Technica can harness the maximum amount of power produced by the turbines when they are linked together to form a private micro-grid system.

The work will be funded by the Productivity Programme (https://productivityprogramme.co.uk/), a scheme funded by the European Regional Development Fund and run by the university of Lincoln. The scheme provides access to academic expertise at the University and is designed to enable Greater Lincolnshire SMEs to advance and develop their ambitions – driving levels of productivity and investment as well as collaborative engagement, leading to new products, processes and services and creating and exploiting new markets.

Speaking of the collaboration, Managing Director of Technica, John Davison stated “I am delighted with the opportunity to collaborate with our local University and particularly someone of the calibre of Professor Bingham”. Continuing, John added “Partnerships such as this can only benefit local industry and further enhance the already excellent reputation of the University of Lincoln”.

Director of Business Development, Richard Law said “This is an exciting partnership which will allow us to develop the micro-grid concept, harnessing more power and therefore enhancing the commercial benefits of the Be-Wind turbines”.

Professor Bingham commented “We are delighted to be supporting Technica Energy with this exciting project which sees the business entering the sustainable energy sector”. He continued “We hope that this agreement is the first step towards further future collaborations”.

The University of Lincoln (www.lincoln.ac.uk) is located in the heart of the city of Lincoln and has established an excellent international reputation based on high student satisfaction, excellent graduate employment and world-class research.

Professor Bingham (https://staff.lincoln.ac.uk/cbingham) has been the Professor of Energy Conversion at the University of Lincoln since 2010, where he was also the first senior appointment and co-founder of the newly formed School of Engineering.

Industrial collaboration and commercial exploitation features strongly in Prof Bingham’s research profile and interests. Selected contributions of his research portfolio that have resulted in commercial market penetration include the development of sensorless hydraulic-electric pump power steering systems for the automotive industry (supported by TRW Conekt, Solihull, UK); designing and prototyping of electrohydrostatic and electromechanical actuation systems for a passenger aircraft (supported by Goodrich Actuation Systems, Fordhouses, Wolverhampton, UK); the development of modular induction heating systems (supported by Inductalec, Sheffield, UK); and the development and realization of real-time prognostic and diagnostic algorithms that monitor a global fleet of industrial gas turbines (supported by Siemens, Lincoln, UK).

As further evidence of the international dimension to Dr. Bingham’s reach and significance in energy and systems sectors, he was selected as a British Council representative in Qatar to promote UK-Qatar collaborative research initiatives for energy security in the region (2011). He has also acted as an international reviewer for the Qatar National Research Fund.

Prof. Bingham is currently an active member of the Editorial Board of ‘Energies’—an open access journal of scientific research technology and development in the Energy Sector and has acted as guest Editor of Special Issues.

Technica Energy is the Sustainability Division of Technica (new.technicaltd.com). Over the past 25 years they have developed the capability to design and deliver complex Electrical, Control, Instrumentation, Mechanical and Process engineering solutions to the UK energy sector.

They are also able to provide EPC, EPCM and consultancy services to clients and have extensive experience in the successful delivery of CDM projects as both Principal Designer and Principal Contractor.
