Pinnacle Power embarked on an impactful partnership in 2018, joining forces with Equitix and Iona Capital to provide Operations and Maintenance services at the Bridgwater Energy from Waste Facility. This collaboration marked the beginning of a transformative journey towards sustainable energy solutions and efficient waste management.
With a focus on reducing landfill waste and promoting clean energy production, the Bridgwater EFW Facility was poised to become a game-changer. Pinnacle Power's involvement aimed to optimize operations and ensure seamless integration of their O&M expertise. The vision was to create a state-of-the-art facility capable of diverting large volumes of refuse-derived fuel (RDF) from landfills while supplying electricity to power thousands of homes.
Project Design and Implementation:
In 2021, Pinnacle Power mobilized its experienced O&M team to commence facility training and collaborate closely with the EPC. This strategic coordination enabled a smooth transition and prepared the Bridgwater EFW Facility for full handover to Pinnacle Power. With meticulous attention to detail, the project unfolded, showcasing Pinnacle Power's commitment to excellence and adherence to industry best practices.
Impact and Future Plans:
The Bridgwater EFW Facility's impact is two-fold. Firstly, it significantly contributes to environmental preservation by diverting up to 122,000 tonnes of RDF from landfills annually. Secondly, it supplies up to 7.75MW of electricity to the National Grid, providing power for approximately 20,000 homes. Pinnacle Power's involvement has propelled the project towards achieving its sustainability goals and has set the stage for future advancements.
Looking ahead, the Bridgwater EFW Facility's success paves the way for expanding its positive impact and embracing further opportunities. Pinnacle Power, together with its partners, is committed to continuously exploring innovative solutions, optimizing operations, and promoting sustainable practices in waste management and energy production.
The Bridgwater Energy from Waste Facility exemplifies the power of collaboration and innovation in driving positive change. Pinnacle Power's partnership with Equitix and Iona Capital has played a vital role in transforming the facility into an exemplary model of sustainable energy production and waste management. By diverting RDF from landfills and generating clean electricity, the project sets a precedent for a greener future.
