Construction set for Beddington energy recovery facility

Formal Notice to Proceed for the start of construction of a new energy from waste facility in the UK’s South London has been issued to contractor Viridor.

The £200 million ($300 million) Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) will provide waste treatment and energy recovery services for the South London Waste Partnership over a 25 year contract period and up to 302,500 tonnes of residual (non-recyclable) waste. It will have a generating capacity of 26 MW, supplying electricity to the National Grid and usable heat for local industry or housing.

The Notice to Proceed for the plant planned for Beddington was issued to Viridor’s technology and construction contractor CNIM Lagan.

Alan Cumming, Viridor Capital Projects and Engineering Directo, said: 'We are pleased to now be able to begin construction works on this important local project. The construction of Beddington ERF will deliver much-needed social infrastructure, using leading-edge technology to transform waste into vital energy for South London.'
