Ceres Power continues to expand throughout 2011

UK-based Ceres Power, an AIM-listed alternative energy company, is currently recruiting for a further 34 positions in disciplines including systems engineering, testing, design, controls engineering and manufacturing and expects to recruit more still throughout the year.

Following the opening of its manufacturing facility and new headquarters in Horsham in late 2009, Ceres increased its head count by nearly 40 per cent in 2010 to 137.

It is now scaling up significantly as the company’s flagship residential combined heat and power (CHP) product moves towards commercialisation, having received CE approval in December 2010.

Following field trials in 2011, Ceres plans to start selling the residential CHP product in 2012 and has a forward volume order from British Gas for a minimum of 37,500 products.
