Work proceeds on Enfield energy recovery facility
The North London Waste Authority (NLW) is redeveloping the Edmonton EcoPark site in Enfield, within the centrepiece of the works being a facility capable of recycling 700,000 tonnes of residual waste from the seven London boroughs.
Currently, the central part of the site is an energy from waste plant, which is nearing the end of its operational life. The project aims to replace this plant with a new and substantially more efficient energy recovery facility, which will generate up to 70MW of electricity, enough to power around 127,000 homes as well as providing residual heat to a local heat network.
Julian Gatward, Managing Director of Taylor Woodrow said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to deliver the EcoPark South Project to contribute towards a more sustainable future for waste in North London.
“We are committed to sustainable construction to deliver a world-class facility, which will benefit the local community for years to come.”
