The Riverside Resource Recovery Facility, located on the banks of the Thames at Belvedere, London, is the UK’s largest Energy from Waste Plant. It has been designed to process more than 585,000 tonnes of municipal and commercial waste from London and its environs and provide 66 MW of electricity to the national grid.
As sections of the plant process equipment were too large to be installed after the building was complete, the building construction programme had to be integrated with the plant installation programme building over the installed plant in many areas. In a tough industrial environment, this large scheme shows how steelwork contributes to enormous environmental benefits and sustainability.
