Wheelabrator files planning application for EfW plant in north Wales

Wheelabrator Technologies has submitted a planning application for a proposed energy-from-waste facility on a former steelworks site at the Deeside Industrial Park.

Gary Aguinaga, Wheelabrator’s managing director for UK and Europe, said: “This is another significant milestone for Wheelabrator and brings the creation of a sustainable, long-term solution to managing residual waste in north Wales a step closer.”

The 16MW plant at Parc Adfer will process 200,000 tonnes of residual waste from across the region.

Wheelabrator said its development team is assessing options for supplying waste heat from the facility in the form of piped steam, to nearby industrial or commercial users.

The company hopes for a decision on the application to be made during the first half of 2015. Construction could start by end 2015, with the facility becoming operational in 2018.

The facility has been commissioned by the North Wales Residual Waste Treatment Project, which is a partnership of five councils: Flintshire County, Isle of Anglesey County, Gwynedd, Conwy County Borough and Denbighshire County.
