Last week, a worker was slain at the massive Edmonton EcoPark construction in north London. Work on the £683 million Energy Recovery Facility has been halted at the site, built by the Spanish infrastructure and energy conglomerate ACCIONA. The victim, a guy in his 50s, was pronounced dead at the scene after a collision with a big goods vehicle, according to police.
“This statement is to confirm with profound grief that a fatality happened on Wednesday afternoon (23 November) at Edmonton EcoPark,” ACCIONA and client the North London Waste Authority said in a joint statement. It concerned a coworker who was on the building site of the Energy Recovery Facility. As a result, construction on the Energy Recovery Facility site has been halted. Our hearts go out to the dead team member’s family and friends in this difficult time. We are assisting individuals affected. The Metropolitan Police and the Health and Safety Executive are investigating the incident. ACCIONA is cooperating closely with its partners to aid in the inquiry.”
