The c. 8 MW energy recovery plant will generate up to 68 GWh of green electricity per annum – enough to power 7,500 homes. The facility is expected to cut greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 12,000 tonnes CO2 every year – the equivalent of removing 5,400 cars from the road.
UMC assisted Kantor Energy in completely redesigning the site and building works post planning (to suit operational preferences, budget constraints and compliance requirements) before coordinating the process elements including: Boiler (Vyncke), Turbine (Man) and Flue Gas Treatment (Luehr).
With works due to complete in Spring 2020, UMC have been involved in the successful development of the project by managing the required planning submissions (non-material amendments) and production of tender package, construction information / co-ordination and completion.
The architectural design has been delivered in BIM, with UMC acting as Architect / Lead Designer and coordinating the general building modelling (along with fire engineering and approved inspector interfaces), and with BMCE acting as Structural and Civil Engineers.
