Viridor’s energy from waste development at Trident Park in Cardiff has been shortlisted in the Royal Town Planning Institute’s latest awards.
The £200m facility, which was developed with the Cardiff-based environmental consultants SLR, will treat residual waste and provide energy to homes and businesses across the city.
The project is up against 34 shortlisted projects, including the Olympic Park.
Viridor’s business development director, Howard Ellard, said: “This nomination recognises the tremendous effort put in by the teams at Viridor and SLR who have worked on this project for more than four years”.
Will Ryan, Principal Planner for SLR, said: “SLR was part of a team that won at the awards last year and we are thrilled to have been shortlisted for an award again this year”.
SLR undertook all the environmental impact assessments and planning work for Trident Park on behalf of Viridor, including the design that was developed to reflect nearby hills.
