London Energy have appointed BGEN on ‘Turbo-Alternator Five”’ which will create energy from both household and industrial waste.
- The project will create a brand new installation at Edmonton Ecopark, which burns waste from several London boroughs to provide energy for the National Grid.
- The turbine hall contains four existing turbines but the new turbine will be more efficient when fully commissioned. It can then be run, allowing the modernisation of the existing turbines without disruption to service or output.
- BGEN received the enquiry twelve months ago for the mechanical works and were successful in their tender response. Subsequently the electrical work was also won, making BGEN the sole M,E&I contractor.
- Both mechanical and electrical departments are collaborating on the same project to deliver a fully turnkey solution. There are many efficiencies therefore, as well as one point of contact for better project coordination.
