CNIM hands over the Beddington waste-to-energy plant to Viridor


On 1st July 2019, CNIM transferred operation of the waste-to-energy plant located in Beddington, Croydon (UK), to its customer, VIRIDOR. CNIM has handed over an ultra-modern turnkey facility, for which it managed everything from design to installation of the industrial process and plant commissioning.

The plant is equipped with premium CNIM technologies. Features include:

  • Two 17.6 t/h incineration lines with an annual processing capacity of 275,000 t of domestic waste;
  • Combustion system with a Martin grate and dual vertical flows;
  • ActiLABTM dry lime flue gas treatment system supplied by LAB, a CNIM subsidiary;
  • Siemens turbogenerator designed to produce up to 210 GWh of electricity. This output covers the plant’s onsite power requirements, with the surplus of approximately 22 MW injected to the national grid, covering the electricity needs of around 55,000 homes.

In the United Kingdom, the CNIM Group has now built Waste-to-Energy (W2E) facilities in London (SELHCP), Chineham, Marchwood, Portsmouth, Sheffield, Jersey, Lincolnshire, Staffordshire, Oxfordshire, Suffolk, Cardiff, Shropshire, Leeds, Wilton and Beddington.

The Group also operates the facilities in Dudley, Wolverhampton and Stoke-on-Trent. CNIM is currently building the planned W2E plant in Avonmouth near Bristol for Viridor, as well as W2E facilities in Earls Gate (for a Joint-venture between Brockwell Energy Ltd, Green Investment Group and Covanta), Wheelabrator Kemsley and Wheelabrator Parc Adfer (for Wheelabrator Technologies) and Lostock (for CIP Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and FCC Environment, forming LSEP – Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant Ltd).
