Pell Frischmann - News - Enviroprarks, Hirwaun
We are pleased to announce that we have been successful in our bid for the Client’s Engineer role for a large, flagship energy-from-waste facility at Hirwaun, South Wales. Fully built, the plant will process 250,000 tonnes of mixed commercial, municipal and food waste per annum. Utilising state of the art Plasma Gasification and Anaerobic Digestion processes, the plant will produce an energy rich gas to fuel engines generating both renewable electrical power and useable heat energy. The site covers 18 hectares of land inside an area of high environmental sensitivity. The total inward investment into Hirwaun will be between £70 million and £100 million and the job creation will be between 150 and 200 jobs.
The client’s vision is to develop resource recovery parks where diverse wastes are recycled using integrated advanced technologies on a single site to produce maximum energy and minimum residual waste with minimum environmental impact. Enviroparks business model relies on using a combination of technologies to extract the maximum amount of energy from “waste” feedstocks in a symbiotic way thereby avoiding landfill and optimising efficiency. Enviroparks is configured as an energy producer and its processes can result in less than 10% of its input feedstock going to landfill.
This is a milestone project for Pell Frischmann, beating off major competition to win this unique opportunity to be involved in the design of the first fully integrated waste “recycling park” within the UK.
The first stage of the work starts immediately with Environmental Permitting work, production of performance specifications, contract documents and working with the appointed EPC Contractor to produce a target cost.
