ERF links with the grid

Viridor has confirmed that its Ardley energy recovery facility (ERF) in Oxfordshire has successfully synchronised with the National Grid.

This is one of the final steps to be put in place before the £200m plant becomes fully operational later this year.

It is expected to process 300,000 tonnes of residual waste each year and generate enough electricity to power more than 38,000 homes, diverting 95% of Oxfordshire’s residual municipal waste from landfill in the process.

Construction of the site began in November 2011 by contractor CNIM Clugston Oxfordshire.
