NLWA Statement on ERF Procurement

20 Aug 2021

North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is pleased to confirm Acciona, supported by technical expertise from Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI), has submitted detailed solutions to tender for the Energy Recovery Facility (ERF).

Two of the most prominent companies in the sector, Acciona (as EPC) and HZI (as the lead technology supplier), are working together for the nationally significant North London Heat and Power Project. The companies bring a wealth of global experience and a proven track record for delivering high quality energy from waste projects to the most modern standards.

We are therefore progressing the procurement. This is allowing a detailed and intense dialogue phase of the procurement to be undertaken, ensuring that plans and costs are subject to the most thorough exploration to achieve a successful outcome for north London’s residents.

We are confident that the procurement process, following all requirements of the Public Contract Regulations 2015 and delivering value for money, will enable a decision for the ERF contract award to be made, in line with our programme for delivering this world-class project. The ERF will help tackle the Climate Emergency, provide long-term jobs, and create lifechanging apprenticeships.

In all its actions NLWA ensures compliance with legal obligations and the delivery of value for money for council tax payers. The procurement is being carried out, meeting all terms of public procurement for such a contract as set out in the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. The Authority always announces the result of contract awards which demonstrates the value being achieved for council tax payers.
