CIP and FCC Environment have reached financial close on the Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant.

Once operational, it will be one of UK and Europe’s largest energy-from-waste (EfW) plants.

The £480m Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant project has been given the green light for construction by owners Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP) (60%) and FCC Environment (40%) after the project reached financial close today, March 26, 2019.

Located in Lostock, Northwest England, the EfW plant will process waste per which will contribute to the UK government’s strategy to reduce landfill and export of waste.

With a capacity of 60MW, the Lostock facility will be among the biggest EfW plants in the UK as well as Europe and is expected to power roughly 110,000 homes, offsetting more than 200,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

It will be bringing hundreds of local jobs to the area during construction as well as around 50 permanent jobs in the operations phase.

The EfW plant will be built on the land of Tata Chemicals Europe (TCE).

The plant will through site upgrades and mutual offtake agreements for steam and sodium bicarbonate deliver significant new infrastructure for TCE’s soda ash plant and wider Lostock site and thereby underpin TCE operations and jobs for the long term.
