Prosiect Gwyrdd has recently announced the Participants that have been short-listed for the residual waste contract between 5 local authorities.
The Project has now started ''detailed dialogue' with these companies and face to face briefings will take place during February.
The following participants (in alphabetical order) have been issued with the 'Detailed Solutions' documentation, beginning the next phase of the procurement process.
Covanta Energy Ltd: Covanta Energy Ltd is proposing a merchant Energy from Waste (EfW) facility located at Brig y Cwm, Merthyr Tydfil.
Veolia ES Aurora Ltd: Veolia ES Aurora Ltd is proposing an Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) located at Bowlease Common, South of the existing Corus Llanwern Steelworks, Newport.
Viridor Waste Management Ltd: Viridor Waste Management Ltd is proposing a merchant Energy from Waste (EfW) with Combined Heat and Power facility located at Trident Park, Cardiff.
Waste Recycling Group Ltd: Waste Recycling Group Ltd is proposing a Combined Heat and Power, Energy from Waste (EfW) facility located at Dow Corning, Cardiff Road, Barry.
Waste Recycling Group Ltd had anticipated locating its facility at Traston Road, Newport. However, a development in its proposed off-take arrangements has necessitated a change in the proposed location of its facility to Cardiff Road, Barry.
The project will deliver a contract to provide residual waste treatment facilities for the five partner authorities in partnership with the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG), after recycling and composting has been maximised in each area. The WAG has set a minimum 70% recycling and composting target, and partner authorities have developed waste strategies to strive towards a 65% combined target with at least a further 5% being recovered through the residual waste treatment process.
To support this phase of the procurement, stakeholder events will be organised so that residents and interested parties have the opportunity to engage with the partnership. An advertising campaign will take place and the media will be updates when information is available.
