In operation since August 2004 (primary waste incinerator) and July 2005 (secondary waste incinerator), the facility processes 60,000 tonnes of domestic waste and commercial residual waste from the island. Further, it contributes 10 per cent of the island's electricity consumption.
The facility applies cutting edge technologies to maintain high environmental and operational standards. As an example, the capture of rainwater for use in the plant process and the recycling of all water used reduces the demand for mains water in the plant by 40 per cent.
Ramboll Energy was involved in all aspects of the build's phases, providing services ranging from early-phase planning to conceptual design and layout, tender documentation and evaluation, procurement management, contract negotiation and management, and supervision during construction and commissioning.
We currently manage the Department of Local Government and the Environment’s continued obligations under the 25-year operating period of the project agreement between SITA (Isle of Man) Ltd. and the Department.
