HPW is working closely with project developer North Beck Energy and the consultant team to design a £170 million Energy from Waste centre, to be built on vacant land to the south east of Immingham Port.

3D visualisation and architectural services were provided by the HPW team to support the upcoming planning application.

 

 

Approximately 50% of the energy generated would be classed as renewable....

The proposed main building employs a curved roof which rises from 34 metres to a maximum 46 metres above ground floor level, to house the specialist processing machinery. The overall footprint of the proposed HPW designed buildings will be approximately 1.5 hectares.

Benefits:

  • The generation of 50 MW (megawatts) of badly needed dependable electricity generation for the local grid, delivering the equivalent of the annual average consumption in 90,000 homes.
  • The opportunity to recover electrical energy from pre-treated and processed industrial and household refuse which would otherwise be disposed of into landfill sites or even sent to Europe for power generation there.
  • Approximately 50% of the energy generated would be classed as renewable.
  • 350 jobs will be created during the three-year construction phase and 40 full time posts over the operational lifetime of 25 years or more.
  • Substantial indirect employment and investment in transport, training, and other support industries
  • Expected contribution to the Local Authority, through business rates, of £1.5m+ per annum
  • Investment of significant, privately sourced capital expenditure, worth £170m, in a disadvantaged region - without the need for any government or other public subsidies or grants.

The planning application is expected to be submitted to North East Lincolnshire Council by early 2018.
