LAW firm Dickinson Dees has advised the Tyneside arm of building services giant Carillion to on a deal to exclusively market and install a revolutionary new heating system, ecopod.
Newcastle-based Carillion Energy Services is teaming up with the Warrington-based Belfry Group to market and install its award-winning heating system which can virtually halve energy costs and emissions in buildings using a combination of renewable technologies.
Carillion Energy Services is one of the largest national suppliers of heating and renewable energy in the UK. The collaboration agreement gives Carillion the exclusive right to market, sell and install the ecopod system.
The team at Newcastle firm Dickinson Dees, which comprised experts from across its commercial, corporate, intellectual property and employment teams, included Lucy Pringle, Mark Pearce, Andy Hall and Jamie Pass.
Pringle, project lead at Dickinson Dees, said: “We’re delighted to have completed this deal for Carillion. By combining with the Belfry Group, the ecopod product can be delivered to a wider customer base, across the public and private sectors and in both domestic and commercial properties. The deal represents a great opportunity for both parties.”
Carillion Energy Services director Phil Shepley said: “ecopod has already proved to be an outstanding solution for reducing fuel bills - by over 40% in some cases - and carbon emissions. The work that Dickinson Dees has completed for us has allowed Carillion an exclusive licence to provide ecopod to customers worldwide.”
“The team at Dickinson Dees was very helpful, responsive and flexible to the needs required to push this agreement through without compromising the quality of their service or advice.”
Keith Rimmer, managing director of the Belfry Group, said: “Carillion Energy Services shared our vision for the future of ecopod and we are excited at the prospect of driving it to the forefront of the renewable energy market.”
By investing in this innovative system, Carillion builds on the current installations it has around Manchester and Liverpool.
