Trident Park Energy Recovery Facility in Cardiff is now only a few months away from completion.
Once fully operational the facility will be handling 350,000 tonnes of residual waste, or post-recycling waste, per year, generating 28MW of electricity - enough to power around 50,000 households. 172,000 tonnes of that waste will be coming from five Councils that make up the Prosiect Gwyrdd partnership: Cardiff, Newport, Monmouthshire, Vale of Glamorgan and Caerphilly.

LATEST UPDATE FROM SITE – 22 December 2014 @ 1600
The facility is currently nearing the end of the hot commissioning phase, with most systems having been tested to prove compliance with the Technical Specification and Contractual Terms.
The steam turbine has been synchronised and is regularly generating between 30 to 32 MW.
We are currently undertaking the ‘Operability Demonstration’, which involves testing the Facility under normal operating conditions for a continuous period of 14-days, a major milestone that needs to be achieved prior to Viridor accepting the Plant from the EPC Contractor. Waste deliveries will be occurring daily during this time, and Takeover is scheduled to be achieved in the New Year.
