Issue No.16: Update on construction mobilisation of EnviRecover
Construction of the steel support structures for the boiler and associated plant is nearly complete and elements of the boiler have started to be installed.
The steel framework of the administration block is near completion; currently the intermediate concrete floor slabs are being cast.
Ground works beneath the tipping hall floor have been carried out and the temporary eastern ramp has been removed in preparation for casting the permanent ramp in concrete. The tower crane that was utilised for slip forming the bunker walls has been removed and preparations are in hand for excavation of the bunker.
The main support structure for the turbine has been completed and the concrete transformer enclosure has been cast. The power generation area is being prepared for Western Power Distribution to come to site within the next few weeks to commence the installation of the electricity sub-station.
Information on the programme for off-site electricity connection works will be issued separately once details are confirmed. There are presently some 240 people engaged on the site.
