11722325 678024932328998 4146132382457940477 o cropped

The first set of contracts for the £500M North London Heat and Power project in Edmonton have been put out for tender .

North London Waste Authority has started the search for contractors to carry out £11.4M of preparatory works, including construction of a laydown area for materials storage and access routes to the site.

Work up for grabs also includes a utilities package to service an EcoPark and divert a sewer.

The Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project, which will be completed by 2025, will dispose of all household, commercial and industrial waste collected by Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest boroughs.

The Energy from Waste (EfW) plant will generate electricity using residual waste as a fuel and will be capable of an electrical output of around 70 MW and low carbon heat.

A resource recovery facility will be constructed to separate waste from recycling, and a visitors centre is planned to inform the public about recycling, waste and power. 

Market engagement exercises for later works stages are planned for this autumn and summer next year.

Ramboll, Amec Foster Wheeler and Adams Hendry provided technical and planning consultancy services.
