Greatmoor energy from waste facility

The facility at Greatmoor, near Calvert in the north of Buckinghamshire, opened in June 2016. It is operated by FCC Environment for Buckinghamshire County Council on a 30-year contract.  

This view looks east, with the railway line left to right through behind the facility.

The cladding shows the three tone green shades clearly with the curved frames running above. 

Viewing from left to right can be seen:

  • the air-cooled condenser fans
  • the flue gas treatment plant
  • the chimney now erected at the right hand end of this building
  • to the right of the chimney is the boiler house where the waste is burnt and energy recovery occurs
  • next is the waste bunker and offices
  • the workshop and waste reception building, at the far right of the facility. 

The following picture is from above the facility.

New access road

The new road opened in July 2014, taking traffic from the A41 to the facility and diverting it away from local villages. The road includes a new roundabout near the Woodham industrial site.
