Enviroparks Hiwaun Ltd has secured planning consent for one of the first merchant waste recycling plants in the UK. The Enviropark is a resource recovery and energy production facility where diverse wastes are recycled using integrated technologies on a single site. The facility will be designed to produce maximum energy and minimum residual waste with minimum environmental impact.
Waterman has been appointed as Lead Consultant for the Phase 1 works on this 20 acre site facility. We are also providing civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and geotechnical engineering services.
The Phase 1 works include the construction of a sophisticated state of the art Materials Recycling Facility, together with Anaerobic Digestion and Gasification plants, planned within Phase 2 of the project. Phase 1 has included the design of a piled, steel framed Materials Recycling Building.
