Development of Viridor’s 34 MW Waste to Energy Facility Worth £5.3m to Local Firms in Avonmouth

Taunton-based recycling and waste to energycompany, Viridor, has spent £5.3 million so far with local businesses within 30 miles of the £252 million Resource Recovery Centre in Avonmouth.

The company, a part of the Pennon Group (LSE: PNN) has been working with local contractors including PMS, GAP Hire Solutions, Hanson and B&A on the construction of the Avonmouth energy from waste plant, which will divert 320,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste away from landfill.

“As part of Viridor’s Resource Recovery Centre construction we have been clear that working with local businesses is at the heart of establishing ourselves as a responsible neighbour,” commented Viridor Managing Director Phil Piddington. “It is not just during the construction phase of these projects that local suppliers can benefit, we will require support throughout the life of the facility.”

According to the company, in line with it and its construction partners commitment to support the local economy, some of the suppliers were sourced directly from Viridor’s ‘Meet the Buyer’ event in Bristol last July, attended by more than 30 companies interested in being involved.

Construction on site started in summer 2017 and, when operational, the facility will generate around 34MW, enough electrical power to supply 44,000 homes, the equivalent of a population larger than the city of Bath.

SUEZ officially opens new Cornwall and Wilton energy-from-waste facilities

SUEZ hosted events at the Wilton facility in Redcar on Thursday 14 June 2018 and at the Cornwall energy recovery centre on Friday 15 June 2018, celebrating the efforts of the many hundreds of people involved in bringing these complex facilities to fruition. In the past two years, SUEZ has developed and successfully commissioned three new energy-from-waste facilities – Wilton, Cornwall and Severnside (for West London), the latter of which was officially launched earlier in 2018.

The Wilton energy-from-waste facility on Teesside was officially opened on Thursday by MRWA Deputy Chairperson, Cllr Tony Concepcion and SUEZ recycling and recovery UK CEO, David Palmer-Jones.

SUEZ recycling and recovery UK works in partnership with Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority and other local organisations to manage the household waste that’s generated daily across Merseyside and Halton. Waste – which otherwise would have gone to landfill – is brought to the state-of-the-art facility on the Wilton International Industrial Estate where it is treated to generate enough electricity to power 63,000 homes.

Steam generated is also exported to local industries on the Wilton International Industrial Estate. Residual waste from around Merseyside and Halton arrives at the Knowsley rail transfer loading station on Merseyside – operated by SUEZ recycling and recovery UK – where it is sent by rail container to Wilton energy-from-waste facility on Teesside. Transporting residual waste by rail saves the equivalent of 1,000 HGV journeys and offsets around 127,000 tonnes of CO2 each year.

The official opening was marked by a tree planting and plaque presentation.
