Proposed Development: Ringaskiddy Resource Recovery Centre
On the 13th of January 2016, Indaver submitted an application to An Bord Pleanála to develop a piece of strategic infrastructure. The infrastructure in question is a 240,000 tonnes per annum waste-to-energy facility (waste incinerator with energy recovery) for the treatment of household, commercial, industrial, non hazardous and suitable hazardous waste.
“Indaver’s proposed development, valued at €160 million, is the type of strategic infrastructure Ireland needs. Our waste-to-energy technology treats non-recyclable waste as a resource and recovers electricity and other valuable materials from it. Waste-to-energy produces an indigenous energy resource”, says John Ahern, Indaver’s MD.
The facility will generate approximately 18.5MW of electricity for export to the national electrical grid. This will be enough to supply the power needs of approximately 30,000 households.
In addition, the proposed development will include an upgrade to a section of the L2545 road, coastal protection measures on Gobby Beach, a connection to the national electricity distribution grid, raising the ground levels in part of the site, and the provision of an amenity walkway along the eastern and part southern boundary of the site.
