The commissioning of Isle of Wight waste-to-energy project developed by Amey is being delayed. The original date of operation was summer 2019. The Isle of Wight council said that the plant should be operational in spring 2020.

A council spokesperson said: “Construction of the energy from waste plant is continuing with Amey reporting that the ERF is currently expected to be operational in the second quarter of 2020. We are continuing to work with Amey to complete this as soon as possible. The EfW, once completed, will provide a key resource to help increase the amount of waste diverted from landfill while generating power for up to 5000 homes.”

The EfW plant is permitted to treat up to 44,000 tonnes of refuse-derived fuel per annum and it is set to produce up to 23,000 megawatt-hours of energy per year, once up and running.
