Bromborough based Fleetsolve appoints new MD to drive £150m growth plan

Fleetsolve, a member of the SIMEC Group, has appointed Damian Shevloff, as its new managing director marking a new chapter for the rapidly expanding renewable combined heat and power (CHP) company.

Shevloff, working alongside CEO and founder of Fleetsolve, Keith O’Connor, joins the company to help spearhead the firm’s £150 million growth plan announced last week which includes the creation of 70 new jobs in the next 6 months.

With almost 30 years of CHP sector experience, Damien Shevloff brings with him a wealth of invaluable know-how and expertise of the wider CHP sector. Prior to joining Fleetsolve, he held the position of managing director of Veolia CHP, responsible for transforming the performance VCHP into a large, successful, and profit-making business.

Keith O’Connor says: “As a seasoned operator Damian’s acumen and expertise are second to none and I’m thrilled that he’s joined Fleetsolve. Over the next five years we will be significantly expanding our business across all CHP sectors and markets.

“His broad experience in the gas and methane sectors will create an integrated approach for our customers enhancing the offering of our successful biofuel CHP business whilst developing our hydrogen ready gas CHP units, forming  an essential part of our zero-carbon energy transformation.

“Damian’s appointment not only propels us further towards our goal of enabling large UK private and public sector organisations to take the step-change towards achieving their zero-carbon goals, but it also sends a clear signal to the CHP sector of our focus and commitment to fully realise our ambitions.”

Fleetsolve specialises in the design, manufacture and operation of liquid biofuel combined heat and power (CHP) units. The units are fuelled using a range of liquid biofuels produced from end of waste liquids – such as oils, fats and greases – to create a renewable fuel, to power a zero-carbon on-site power solution that can exceed the clients carbon reduction targets.

Their renewable energy package works across all major industry sectors, in multiple power critical environments, including large retail sites, NHS Hospitals, chemical manufacturing plants, hotels, conferencing centres, prisons, schools and universities including The London School of Economics and The University of Nottingham, providing audited carbon neutral renewable energy solutions 24/7.

Shevloff, who joined the company this month, says: “I’m hugely excited to be joining Fleetsolve as managing director at a time when the business is on a significant growth trajectory. With Keith’s vision and the scale of ambition, I relish the opportunity to help spearhead its delivery.

“The buzz at Fleetsolve is palpable! The momentum of growth is fantastic and of a scale that I’ve not seen since the beginning of my career. With our ambitious plans and extensive recruitment drive over the coming months, I’m extremely excited about the future and what we will achieve.”
