NLWA awards contract for Site Wide Intrusive Works contract

North London Waste Authority (NLWA) has appointed to Galldris Services Ltd to carry out a series of intrusive ground investigation works at the EcoPark to allow for the successful delivery of the North London Heat and Power Project (NLHPP).

The Site Wide Intrusive Works contract will comprise of vacuum excavation of trial trenches to locate, map and record buried services on the operational site, and the subsequent reinstatement of all trial trenches. The works that Galldris Services Ltd carry out will provide clarification of any ambiguous information on existing records, identify the specification of each utility and confirm whether the utility is operational or redundant. The contract award notice has been published to Contracts Finder.

The appointment of Galldris Services Ltd to this works contract represents another step forward in the delivery of NLHPP. The NLHPP is NLWA’s flagship project to construct an Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) and associated plant to replace the existing energy from waste facility at the Edmonton EcoPark. The existing energy from waste facility is expected to reach the end of its operational life around 2025, when the new ERF facility is expected to become operational. It will use advanced technology to offer the most cost effective and environmentally friendly solution to treat the volume of waste produced by north London’s residents. The site wide intrusive works are part of the preparatory works for the project.
