Recovery - EnviRecover PROJECT

* This page is under development and will be revised throughout the construction phase of the project.

In May 2014 work started on the construction of EnviRecover – a 200,000 tonne per year Energy-from-Waste facility at the Hartlebury Trading Estate, near Kidderminster, Worcestershire. The key elements of the project and its management are set out below.

The clients

Worcestershire County Council and the County of Herefordshire District Council are the ultimate clients for EnviRecover, having procured the plant via their waste management contractor, Mercia Waste Management. Upon completion of Mercia’s contract with the Councils in 2023, the fully operational plant will revert to the Councils, who will most likely tender a further operational contract.

Who is building the plant?

Mercia has awarded the main construction contract to the Swiss-based technology provider, Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI). This company has a wealth of experience in Energy-from-Waste and related technologies, and has been involved in seven similar projects in the UK to date. For more information on HZI go to www.hz-inova.com.

Timetable

Construction commenced in May 2014 and handover is due to take place in the spring of 2017. The first waste to be delivered into the plant as part of commissioning trials will be in the autumn of 2016. To follow the progress of construction please refer to the Keeping in Touch section of this web site.
