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.
The below photo shows the north side of the facility.
This shot shows the grassed mount to the east of the facility, the construction compound and the Calvert landfill site to the west.
This is the waste grab and feed chute.
This is a view of waste burning on the grate.
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.
The photo shows the roundabout in the foreground and the new road heading off into the distance (top right), before swinging round to the west (left) to the site.
