About this event

Peterborough EfW is an Energy from Waste facility that annually processes 85,000 tonnes of residual waste to generate 7.25MW of electricity, enough to supply 15% of the homes in Peterborough, and reducing the volume of household waste sent to landfill by up to 94%.

Planning was obtained in 2013 for a public-private partnership as part of the Council's waste management strategy. A full environmental impact assessment considered the benefits the plant would bring as part of a wider development of improved material recycling facility, anaerobic digestion plant and Energy Park.

The project was completed in December 2015 and officially opened on 16 March 2016.

The talk will cover both the structural design and construction aspects of the project. Extensive use of 3D modelling of both the structure and the process equipment were a key aspect of this project and overall construction sequencing of major items of equipment were an essential driver to the development of this project.
