The Lincoln EfW plant was designed on a single stream 150,000 tonnes per annum martin grate process with dry flue gas treatment. The project gained planning consent in July 2009 and reached financial close in March 2011. Lincolnshire County Council let the contract as a DBO contract to FCC Environmental.

At ISDS we provided;

  • Technical Support for final bidder and Preferred Bidder Stages;
  • EPC Specification clarifications;
  • Detailed carbon management plan.

As Owners Engineer our role included;

  • Design review;
  • Quality assurance;
  • EPC contract management;
  • Full time site supervision.

The Lincoln EfW plant was funded by Lincolnshire County Council, who choose to use the prudential borrowing financial mechanism, through a loan from the National Loans Fund linked to HM Treasury. The development is thought to have been one of the quickest ‘planning to hot commissioning’ facilities ever developed in the UK.
