The largest producer of biogas in Denmark, Nature Energy, has acquired Xergi from Schouw & Co. and Hedeselskabet. Xergi is one of Europe’s leading suppliers of turnkey biogas plants and is now combining its competences with another of Denmark’s leading biogas companies.
Xergi is a leading supplier of advanced turnkey biogas plants with 64 plants delivered across Europe and the US. The company has 86 employees with headquarters in Denmark and sales offices in the UK, France and Japan. Xergi specializes in large-scale plants with any mix of feedstock, including among others food waste, manure, deep litter, organic waste and straw. Schouw & Co. and Hedeselskabet together established the company in 2004 through the combination of Hedeselskabets contractor business and Schouw & Co.’s biogas business and have since each held a 50% stake in Xergi. Nature Energy is the largest producer of biogas in Denmark. Green gas is produced through the co-digestion of manure, food waste and other organic waste. The company owns and operates 6 biogas plants together with its partners and is currently building several new plants. With the acquisition of Xergi, Nature Energy will strengthen its competences within construction of biogas plants, particularly project execution and biological knowhow, as well as get access to Xergi’s international network and pipeline.
ATRIUM Partners, the Danish MidCap Alliance partner, advised the shareholders of Xergi (Schouw & Co. and Hedeselskabet) in connection with the sale to Nature Energy.
