RPS acted as lead consultant for the proposed EfW facility which will process 750,000tpa of residual waste and producing a combined power output of 108 MW of electricity and heat for local industries.

RPS was commissioned to prepare an Infrastructure Planning Commission DCO application and associated Environmental Impact Assessment for the proposed development.

The DCO application was submitted in December 2010 and accepted in January 2011. RPS assisted Covanta in taking the application through the IPC determination process until Covanta withdrew the application in September 2011.

The project drew upon a full range of technical expertise including Waste, Air Quality, Ecology, Visual Impact, Transport and Noise.
