Mission Resources has announced the appointment of Paul Stringer as Controls Engineer for the game-changing HERU (Home Energy Resources Unit).
The HERU is a British-designed world-first solution that takes everyday resources (from nappies to food to cardboard to plastic) and uses them to heat the water for a building. It does this through low-temperature pyrolysis (the decomposition of matter in the absence of oxygen).
Paul joins from Industrial Controls and Automation, where he worked with the likes of Müller Dairies and Johnson and Johnson Pharmaceuticals. Paul’s knowledge and experience of control systems are industry leading, having carved a career on projects with Jaguar Land Rover Cars, Siemens and Rolls Royce.
Paul Stringer said: “Working on the HERU is such an exciting challenge. The technology is innovative, but the principles behind it are rooted in centuries old engineering practices. We have an opportunity for the HERU to really change our relationship with resources, and I can’t wait to be part of that journey.”
His role as Controls Engineer for the HERU involves hardware and software development and design of the HERU control system itself, a vital interface between the system and the consumer.
Commenting on the appointment, Nik Spencer, CEO of Mission Resources, the company behind the HERU, said: “Paul brings with him tremendous experience from working with renowned names in the engineering sector.
“The HERU has been designed to be as simple as filling a wheelie-bin, therefore the control system will reflect that simplicity of use. Paul’s role will be crucial in this and will ultimately help move the HERU to the next step which will be mass manufacture.”
The HERU is shortly to begin UK field trials.
