The plant, which has a capacity of 400,000 tonnes a year, will treat residual waste from six west London boroughs, and will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 50,000 homes. The carbon footprint of waste movements has been minimised with the development of a bespoke rail link removing in excess of 100 daily truck movements from the road network.
Together with measures to support recycling in the individual boroughs, the facility will enable the West London Waste Authority to divert 96% of residents’ waste away from landfill.
Better Alignment, Better Value, Better Governance
PiP acquired a stake in the Public Private Partnership to design, build and operate an EfW plant in Bristol and two waste transfer stations in London in late 2017. The 25 year contract for the project provides PiP with the better alignment that it seeks, and marks an end to landfill for West London’s waste.
