The Slough Multifuel Project is a 480ktpa energy from waste facility with a net electrical output of approximately 44 MWe in late stage development. The Project is jointly owned by Scottish and Southern Energy Plc (SSE) and CIP in a 50/50 joint venture. The facility will be located in the greater London area to the west of Heathrow Airport.
Construction of Slough Multifuel will be undertaken by specialist EPC contractor HZI AG and will commence at the beginning of 2021. The facility is expected to be operational by mid 2024.
Slough Multifuel will use traditional combustion technology to process solid waste fuels and generate electricity. The key process stages include a moving grate furnace, a water walled boiler to produce superheated steam and a conventional steam cycle to generate electricity for export to the national grid.
SSE will be responsible for the construction management and operation & maintenance throughout the lifetime of the facility.
