Cornwall energy recovery centre – Operational update
The first planned shutdown of the Cornwall energy recovery centre, to allow routine inspections and maintenance to take place, is in progress.
We have successfully completed the works to line one and we are now bringing this back into service, which involves gradually heating the line until it reaches the required temperature and pressure to process waste. During this controlled heating process, low pressure steam will be released from the facility until the steam reaches the correct pressure to pass through the air-cooled condenser fans. As such, at intervals throughout today and tomorrow you may see steam coming from the facility accompanied by low level noise as the steam is released.
The works to line two are nearing completion and we are scheduled to bring this line back into service towards the end of next week.
