Vital Energi succeeded in a £6.58m contract

Vital Energi is taking up a project to build waste heat from the nearby £680m North London Waste Authority (NLWA) Energy Recovery Facility. This will be used to heat homes and businesses in the London Borough of Enfield.

The company got approval from the local council with planning permission for a new 60MW low-carbon energy centre and district heating network. Enfield council owned Energetik employed Vital Energi to submit the planning permission for the Energy Centre.

After all the completion of energy centre and heat network construction works, Vital Energi will provide operation and maintenance services for a 10-year period. The construction is due to start in January.

The new very low carbon energy scheme will include the 82-hectare Meridian Water development which for customers will include 10,000 homes, workplaces and open spaces, and a new train station.

The NLWA Energy Recovery Facility will be connected to the energy centre after its completion in 2026. The process of taking waste heat and distributing it to customers through a highly insulated network of underground district heating pipes will be done there after.
