Trident Park Energy from Waste and Combined Heat and Power facility in Cardiff has been designed predominantly to provide capacity for residual household waste with a proportion available for waste from local businesses.
It will be able to treat up to 350,000 tonnes of residual waste, or post-recycling waste, a year, generating around 30MW of electricity - enough to supply around 50,000 homes.
Cardiff City Council granted planning permission for the plant in June 2010 and construction started mid-2012. The site is due to start initial waste commissioning in late 2014; opening fully in early 2015.
We are continuing to explore the opportunities for providing heat from the plant to nearby businesses and hope to firm up proposals in the coming months.
