Project Description

Trident Park Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) is the largest ERF in Wales, treating waste from local authority and local business contracts.

The facility, which has been operational since 2014, handles 350,000 tonnes of residual waste (non-recyclable) waste, per year. It diverts at least 95% of South Wales’ residual waste away from landfill and generates 30MW of electricity for the national grid.

DFC were appointed by Tata Steel Projects to deliver the fire strategy for the facility, taking into consideration the requirements of BS9999 alongside significant insurance driven fire protection requirements, a common feature of Energy from Waste (EfW) plants.
