GBE Converge Appointed at Javelin Park Energy from Waste Facility

GBE Converge have been appointed at the Javelin Park EfW (Energy from Waste) facility in Gloucestershire to design, supply, install and commission the Fire, ASD and Gas Suppression Systems.

The project, which is being constructed by a joint venture between Balfour Beatty and Urbaser Ltd. (UBB), a leader in the provision of environmental services, will have the capacity to receive and treat up to 190,000 tonnes of residual black bag waste per year. This system provides a renewable energy supply in the form of electricity and heat; contributing to the UK’s renewable energy targets whilst providing security of supply.

GBE Converge’s experience in working on similar facilities at Margam Green Energy Plant, Cardiff ERF and Templeborough, led to the direct appointment from Main Contractor UBB. Due to the building’s complex structure, GBE Converge used established 3D modelling techniques to enable the design concept to be developed and refined into the final design drawings.

GBE Converge will be working with partners Gent for all Fire systems, Xtralis for the ASD equipment supply and Fire Pro for Gas Suppression.

GBE Converge Business Development Manager Paul Walsh commented, “We have considerable experience working in the renewable energy sector and our technical expertise lends real value to these projects, our team are very excited to be part of Javelin Park”.

The facility is expected to be fully operational by July 2019.
