Contractors wanted for £600m power plant

January 2nd, 2020 Comments off

North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is holding a Market Information Event for contractors interested in building a new £600m power plant.

The event on January 22 will be the first of three market information days focusing on works associated with the delivery of the new Energy Recovery Facility (ERF), as part of the North London Heat and Power Project (NLHPP) at Edmonton EcoPark.

Procurement for the ERF is expected to launch in mid-2020.

It will be capable of generating up to 78 megawatts of electricity, will be the first in the UK to use Selective Catalytic Reduction for emissions removal, and use a combined wet/dry flue gas cleaning system to make it one of the cleanest in the country.

The appointed contractor will deliver all design, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, testing, operator training and handover requirements for the new ERF including all buildings, infrastructure and works.

The key component is the design and construction of the ERF which will treat up to 700,000 tonnes of north London’s non-recyclable waste.

Further details of the works included in the contract be found in a Prior Information Notice (PIN) here.

The Market Information Event is for contractors who want to deliver the ERF project as part of the NLHPP programme and will provide the opportunity for firms to gain more information about:

  • The Authority’s vision for a successful project,
  • The works package value, programme and contract details,
  • The approach to procurement,
  • Balance of risk between client and contractors,
  • Working collaboratively to deliver outcomes, and
  • Social value objectives.

Following the first event in January, a further two events will be held where NLWA will present updates to the procurement strategy following feedback received from contractors. At the event there will be a chance to meet the project team and ask questions.

To confirm attendance, please register here if you would like to attend in person or via the live webcast no later than Friday 17 January.

The venue for those attending in person and access details for those attending online will be communicated to contractors that express an interest to attend.
