ENERGY RECOVERY CENTRE, SEVERNSIDE

SITA Energy Recovery Centre Severnside

Energy Recovery Centre, Severnside

The main challenge of the “Energy from Waste” building design was to efficiently, but elegantly, enclose the process equipment, boldly expressing the functions within the building envelope. The resultant form comprises 5 concentric volumes shaped, in cross section, to reach up to the power station to the south and diving down into the Rhine to the north.

Staff and Visitor accommodation is located within the Western gable at the principal point of arrival to the site and where it has the most visual impact giving an appropriate focus of public and pedestrian activity.

To the north of the Rhine there is a separate, yet integral, Incinerator Bottom Ash Recovery Plant to process the material discharged from the main energy recovery plant. The IBA recycles the EfW bottom ash on site to ensure that it will not be sent to landfill minimising transportation and helping to provide an even more sustainable solution.
