Peel Environmental to work with BWV to deliver Ince Park

Peel Environmental has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Babcock & Wilcox Volund (BWV) to progress the consented Ince Resource Recovery Park in Cheshire.

The deal will see Peel and BVW work together to pursue the development, construction and operation of the consented Energy from Waste plant which will service local needs and industry.

Jane Gaston, Development Manager, Peel Environmental said:

“We are delighted to be working with BWV to take Ince Park forward. The site is already consented and with a delivery partner onboard, we are targeting having an operational facility by 2019.

“Ince Park could deliver a new renewable energy source for the region, reducing the reliance on landfill and exportation of waste overseas. We are now looking to get contracts in place with local waste producers.”

Simon Allin, Business Development Director, B&W Volund said:

“Ince Park is in a great location to service the North West region, with the potential to provide low carbon and renewable heat and electricity to businesses in the local area. We are looking forward to working with Peel Environmental to deliver a state-of-the-art facility.”

Located near Ellesmere Port, the plant would take household and commercial & industrial residual waste from the region. Construction is planned to start in 2016 with the first line operational by 2019. For further information on commercial opportunities contact:
