The construction and commissioning phase of Trident Park, Energy Recovery Facility has been completed and the facility is now fully operational under Viridor’s management.
The facility is handling 350,000 tonnes of residual waste, or post-recycling waste, per year, exporting 30MW of electricity to the grid - enough to power around 50,000 households.
172,000 tonnes of that waste is coming from five Councils that make up the Prosiect Gwyrdd partnership: Cardiff, Newport, Monmouthshire, Vale of Glamorgan and Caerphilly.
An update on the handover and performance testing of the plant will be posted in the next few days.
