Hoddesdon Sustainable Energy Facility, Hertfordshire

Trent Developments

RPS submitted the planning application and completed an Environmental Impact Assessment for a Sustainable Energy facility comprising an Advanced Thermal Treatment plant and an Anaerobic Digestion facility.

The Anaerobic Digestion facility will recover energy by utilising the gas generated to produce electricity and heat. The ATT will process 100,000tpa of waste while the AD facility will process 60,000tpa.

RPS provided full Planning, Project Management and co-ordination services, working with an in-house project team of eight specialist teams together with three external specialist consultants selected by Trent Developments.

The co-ordination role provided by RPS allowed the initial findings from the specialist assessments to be fed back to the facility designers, enabling the design proposals to be refined and adapted to incorporate appropriate mitigation measures and ensure that the construction and operation of the facility would not result in any unacceptable environmental impacts.
