Weedon Architects have been involved in delivering this EfW facility in Lincoln for WRG and Lincolnshire County Council.
The facility is designed for a throughput of 150,000 tonnes of household waste per annum, which will produce over 11.24MW of renewable energy for export to the local grid.
There are 204 vehicle movements generated through the site in a day. This includes; staff and visitors plus waste in and materials out. The design of the facility is largely process driven and the access routes around the site have been developed to ensure a safe traffic flow under weigh bridge control with separation between Public/staff and Waste vehicles.
The process areas include:- Tipping Hall, Shredders, Waste Bunkers, Boiler hall, FGT hall, Turbine Hall, Bottom Ash, IBA, Electrical rooms, water treatment, labs, workshops, ACC’s etc. Staff and visitor accommodation includes a 500msq Control room, 60 cover Canteen, Meeting rooms, Boardroom, Staff showers and lockers etc. There is a Visitor Centre to promote an understanding of power regeneration, renewable fuels, waste management and their inter relationships. To maintain the Ecological diversity on the site sand martin nests, bat boxes and extensive planting have been introduced.
