Leading off-grid energy solutions provider Flogas Britain (part of DCC plc), has acquired DTGen, a renowned specialist in standby power generators and combined heat and power (CHP) systems.
This strategic move represents a pivotal step in Flogas’ mission to provide commercial and industrial businesses across the UK with a comprehensive range of energy solutions – one that will not only meet high usage demands and improve energy security, but also enhance efficiencies and help businesses reduce carbon emissions.
With DTGen on board, Flogas will now be able to offer a broader range of energy solutions to customers with high energy needs. This includes emergency/standby diesel and gas power generators that can also be fuelled using lower carbon LPG and HVO, as well as CHP systems, and high voltage services – all of which are aimed to lower emissions, increase energy efficiency and reduce costs.
The move also combines DTGen’s specialist engineers, high-voltage certified professionals and skilled service technicians with Flogas’s expert team, so customers right across the UK will benefit from the highest quality of service and support all in one place.
Commenting on the acquisition, Flogas MD Ivan Trevor says: “DTGen is a fantastic addition to the Flogas family, and this move really step changes our offering to higher energy users and those with onsite power generation needs. The synergy between the businesses was clear, and we knew that combining our offering and expertise would really strengthen our proposition. By joining forces, we can now deliver start-to-finish, tailored solutions for commercial and industrial customers, whilst also fulfilling their on-going energy supply – it makes us a real one-stop-shop.”
Paul Moore, MD at DTGen adds: “This is a really positive and exciting development for our business and the growth of our people, opening up lots of new opportunities. We’ve worked really successfully with Flogas in the past, so by coming together and operating as one team, our offering and combined expertise becomes unrivalled, and we’re excited to bring this to large-scale energy users nationwide. We’re also equally dedicated to helping businesses transition towards a lower carbon future, and together we have the perfect portfolio and future-ready energy supply to make this happen.”
Brian Aitken, Partner at Nevis Capital, says: “Nevis is delighted to have been part of the DTGen journey during the last 13 years, supporting the business to evolve into one of the largest independent providers of power solutions in the UK. We were delighted to lead the deal to sell the business to Flogas, having built a trusted relationship with them over the last few years. We recognise the strategic fit between the businesses and the benefit that being part of Flogas will bring to our people and customers. It has been a pleasure to work with Paul Moore and the team at DTGen for such a long time – from the initial buy-out in 2010, through various acquisitions, to create a truly national player – and we look forward to seeing the business continue to grow and develop as part of Flogas.”
The news follows Flogas’s recent acquisition of Protech Group last year, a renewable technologies provider with market-leading maintenance and water management services. Both acquisitions form part of the company’s long-term strategic plan for New Energies, which aims to provide diverse, dependable energy for businesses with high usage demands. It also aligns with Flogas’s overarching commitment to provide 100% renewable energy solutions for customers by 2040.
“This acquisition significantly bolsters our already growing range of low carbon and renewable technology offerings, which is incredibly important to us as we continue to support businesses in reducing their emissions and improving their environmental impact,” adds Ivan. “We are now better equipped than ever before to help them make their energy transition and meet increasingly pressing sustainability targets.”
