Green light for South Humber energy from waste centre

EP Waste Management (EPWM), a subsidiary of EP UK Investments (EPUKI), has received development consent for the construction, operation and maintenance of an energy from waste (EfW) power station with a gross electrical output of up to 95MW.

Known as South Humber Bank Energy Centre (SHBEC), the scheme is to be built on land at an existing power station near Stallingborough in North East Lincolnshire.

SHBEC will provide approximately 55 permanent jobs, create around 600 jobs during construction and will be capable of operating for at least 30 years. It will generate 95MW from 750,000 tonnes of domestic waste per annum.

It represents a significant investment by EPWM in North East Lincolnshire (approximately £300M) and follows a recent major investment by EPUKI in the existing power station to extend its operational life.

Developer EPWM is a subsidiary of Europe’s sixth largest power generator EPH. The Czech company acquired 2.2GW of gas-fired power stations from Centrica in 2017 and has commissioned a 420MW biomass power station at Lynemouth.
