The 30MW waste to energy facility being built by Viridor at Trident Park in Cardiff is to supply an additional 20 MW of heat to a district heating system.
According to Viridor – a part of the Pennon Group (LSE: PNN) the combined heat and power facility will be the first of its type in Wales.
Chris Jonas, Viridor’s head of strategic development explained that the company would be working in partnership with E.ON and Cardiff Council to realize the project which would enable buildings in central Cardiff areas to receive green energy that can be used for heating or cooling.
Once complete the facility will treat up to 350,000 tonnes of waste each year.
The Trident Park facility will take approximately three years to build in total and is scheduled to start treating waste from summer 2015.
