Major milestone reached at Allerton Waste Recovery Park

Our Allerton team recently celebrated a major milestone when a 170T section of the parks second boiler was installed. It has enabled the team to install all of the remaining sections of the boiler, which when complete will weigh around 480T each.

A video of the boiler lift can be seen here.

With both boilers in position, the team are able to close the roof above the building so that the more sensitive trades can commence on site in preparation for commissioning of the plant in 2017.
Allerton Waste Recovery Park is the design and build of a state of the art integrated waste management facility by VINCI Environment UK, which is a joint venture of VINCI Environment and Taylor Woodrow.

The facility will process up to 320,000 tons of waste per year using mechanical-biological sorting and generating enough electricity to power up to 40,000 homes from the energy from waste plant.
