SEA technology has been chosen for the new energy recovery facility Severnside in South Gloucestershire.
It is a consortium of SITA UK, Scottish Widows Investment Partners (SWIP) and Itochu Capital to convert up to 300,000 tonnes of municipal waste material to energy each year.
Under the contract, waste material that the 1.6 million people living in the London boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow and Richmond upon Thames have not been able to separate for recycling will be transported by rail to the Severnside Energy Recovery Centre.
The facility will produce 34 megawatts of electricity, which is enough to power the equivalent of 50,000 homes and could also provide heat to local businesses further increasing its environmental performance.
This solution will enable to save two million tonnes of CO2 equivalents over the duration of the contract.
SEA has been selected because of its long-standing track record and proven technology, but also because of its ability to manufacture transformers at the forefront of efficiency and environmental performance.
