Opportunity for suppliers
Thank you for your interest in the North London Heat and Power Project (NLHPP). This page contains information relevant for potential suppliers.
More information about supplier opportunities on the NLHPP is available below.
The project is divided into four implementation steps:
- The Preparatory Works, which include:
- A laydown area to the east of the Edmonton EcoPark
- A new eastern access for the EcoPark
- The diversion of a sewer beneath the EcoPark
- The Building Works, which include:
- A Resource Recovery Facility, which is where bulky waste will be separated for recycling, and will also be the location of a recycling centre
- EcoPark House, which will contain office accommodation and a visitors’ centre where people can find out more about recycling, waste, heat, and power
- The ERF Works, which include the construction and commissioning of the Energy Recovery Facility
- The Post-ERF Works, which include the decommissioning and demolition of the existing Energy from Waste Facility
NLWA’s internal project team was responsible for preparing and promoting the Development Consent Order. This means we have strong knowledge and continuity which will make us a clear and consistent client as the project moves into construction. Our knowledge also covers consultation and working with a range of interested organisations.
NLWA has appointed Arup to support the design, procurement, construction and operational transition activities as programme management advisers. In addition, we are supported by a range of expert advisers as shown in the graphic to the right.
For contractors this gives confidence that the client will take decisions based on well-informed views, but with a clear line of accountability.

On 8 June 2021, we held a Market Information presentation in the form of an online webinar for insurers interested in works associated with the Energy Recovery Facility contract.

A Prior Information Notice (PIN) about the proposed works was despatched to the EU Publications Office on Tuesday 21 May 2019 for publication. The CPV codes of the proposed works can be viewed in the PIN. These proposed works cover construction of a Resource Recovery Facility, Reuse and Recycling Centre and EcoPark House including related utilities works, demolition and clearance works, and associated works.
15th August 2018
We are continuing discussions with the Distribution Network Operators to inform the specification of the utility bridge and corridor works package. We are now expecting to procure these works in 2019, and updates will be posted to this website.
25th June 2018
On 29 June 2018, NLWA will begin the procurement process for three works contracts. The procurement for the works to the Northern Access (Deephams Farm Road) will proceed as described previously, but the Laydown Area and Eastern Access works will be split into two work packages. These packages will be:
- the Laydown Area (East); and
- the Laydown Area (West) and Eastern Access.
All three contracts will be advertised on Contracts Finder. Potential contractors will be able to access the procurement documents and submit their tender responses through NLWA’s e-procurement portal.
Note that as the two packages relating to the Laydown Area will both have contract values above the relevant EU thresholds, they will also be advertised on Tenders Electronic Daily (TED), a supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union. EU regulations mean that until a notice is live on TED, a contract cannot be advertised elsewhere. NLWA will therefore submit the contract notice to TED on 29 June 2018 and, once the notice is live, publish details of the contract on Contracts Finder and the e-procurement portal. This is likely to happen early in the week commencing 2 July 2018.
This update supersedes the previous update of 31 May 2018.
31st May 2018
Suppliers are advised that NLWA intends to begin procuring two works contracts for the North NLHPP at the end of June 2018. The contracts will be for:
- the laydown area and eastern access; and
- the northern access.

Health and Safety
Managing safety effectively is an essential part of the project and must be managed in conjunction with the existing operations on the project site. To ensure this, NLWA will:
- show strong and active leadership, encouraging the integration of good health and safety management with business decisions; and
- consider how our strategic decision making will affect our ability and that of our suppliers to manage safety effectively.
We will work with suppliers to ensure that they deal with all health and safety matters in accordance with our policies, all relevant regulations, and guidance issued by the Health and Safety Executive generally and specifically to the waste industry.
