Denmark’s national energy company, Ørsted (formerly DONG Energy), is a world leader in renewable energy, including wind energy generation, investing over £5.5 billion into the UK alone. In 2014, Ørsted announced it would introduce its patented Renescience enzyme technology into the UK waste market.

Coast initially arranged a journalist familiarisation tour of a plant in Copenhagen over 12 years ago. Following site selection in Northwich, Cheshire, we designed and delivered successful bespoke consultation and engagement for both the planning application process and construction programme. We set up, and continue to run, the Local Liaison Committee (LLC) and we provide ongoing stakeholder engagement support.

The Local Liaison Committee, supported by a newsletter and media work, has been integral in maintaining good relations with the local community.
