Newport Dock Waste to Energy
Burroughs have been appointed as the civil engineering designers by Harris Pye, and are responsible for all pre-tender and detailed design of all civil engineering aspects of this exciting and challenging project. The proposed development is a Waste to Energy plant that combusts refuse derived fuel to produce energy.
The existing site is approximately 2.2 hectares and is located within Associated British Ports land at Newport Dock. The challenges the team are tackling include: poor and variable ground conditions including a high water table, contaminated land, and unexploded bombs among others.
Site clearance works to allow further ground investigation works is expected to begin imminently, which is an important milestone. Burroughs are working collaboratively and positively with Harris Pye, WSP, and Remedy Geotechnics. We have continued to support this project during the COVID-19 pandemic and UK lockdown with no break to the project deliverables which is testament to the drive and commitment of the team.
