Lakeside Energy from Waste Plant




Lakeside is an energy from waste plant in Slough. I was principle draughtsman on this project, and had one extra draughtsman at my disposal when required.




There are over 2000 tons of structural steel, and the building and stands over 40 meters tall.


Viridor Waste Management joined forces with Grundon Waste Management Ltd and set up a joint venture company, Lakeside Energy From Waste Limited, to build and operate an energy from waste plant at Colnbrook near Slough.


The plant has a capacity of 400,000 tonnes per annum.



The facility will assist local councils in meeting their landfill diversion targets and avoiding penalties under the Landfill Allowance Trading Scheme (LATS).


It will also provide power generation capacity of 32 megawatts of electricity which will be fed into the national grid.
