Three rival CHP schemes vie for London waste project

Three competing combined heat and power schemes are battling it out to win a contract to process up to 300,000 tonnes of solid recovered fuel in London.

Covanta Energy is proposing a combined heat and power (CHP) plant at the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery site at Silvertown, East London.

E.ON/Wheelabrator Technologies is proposing a CHP plant at DS Smith Paper's site at Kemsley Mill, Sittingbourne, Kent.

Veolia Environmental Services (UK) wants a CHP enabled power plant at an existing industrial site in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire.

The winning proposal will be selected from one of the three shortlisted candidates during the next 12 months using an evaluation framework that focuses on the quality and cost of the solution.

The carbon impact of proposals, including that of the transport solution proposed, will be an important factor as The North London Waste Authority is looking for a long-term and sustainable solution for dealing with residual waste in the area.
