VIbrock have worked with Stratus Environmental on a number of new energy generation facilities. The technology is new, with only one such test plant currently operational in the UK. Vibrock undertook detailed baseline noise and vibration monitoring and using manufacturers and measured data constructed models to predict any potential impact during the construction and operational phases. Where necessary mitigation measures were recommended to minimise any possible impact.
To date all of the sites which Vibrock have worked on have been successful in gaining planning permission and are in the process of going through the environmental permitting stage. It is anticipated that the first plant will be operational within the next two years.
Stratus Environmental has secured planning permission on behalf of Thames Gateway Power (a subsidiary of Cyclamax) for a 120,000 tonnes a year energy recovery facility in East London.
The facility will be located on the London Sustainable Industries Park (LSIP) in Dagenham and will process non-recyclable, commercial and industrial residual waste streams using a Batch Oxidation System gasification technology. The facility will generate up to 15 MWe/ 64 MWth of power and heat, equivalent of powering 31,500 homes, and will have the potential to supply renewable, low carbon heat and power to future occupiers of the LSIP.
Planning permission was unanimously granted by the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation Planning Committee following a 15 week determination period, which also required the planning application to be considered by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, and the Greater London Authority.
Tony Watkins, Managing Director at Cyclamax, said he was "delighted" at the quick turn-around of receiving planning permission for the facility.
Stratus Environmental worked closely with Thames Gateway Power, the LSIP developers, and architects Race Cottam to prepare the planning application and EIA, a process which also included extensive engagement with key stakeholders.
