March 7, 2022 Green energy project picks FSP for access products

FSP has provided custom-made landing platforms and ladders for use in a new energy-from-waste facility being built near Shepshed, Leicestershire.

The Newhurst Energy Recovery Facility is being developed by BiffaCovanta and Green Investment Group, which are market leaders in the investment, development and operation of recycling and energy-from-waste facilities in the UK and around the world.

FSP has provided square landing platforms for the Newhurst site, which will be used for entry into the valve and flow control chambers. FSP landing platforms are available in a range of shapes and sizes and feature one or two hinged access panels. Available in either galvanised mild steel or stainless steel, the landing platforms are manufactured to BS EN1090 1:2009+A1:2011 Execution Class 2.

To go with the landing platforms, the contractors McRail also specified FSP steel ladders with retractable hand holds. FSP ladders come in both galvanised mild steel and stainless steel options and are made to bespoke sizes to fit any requirement. The ladders are supplied with jointing brackets and fixings and feature ribbed rungs for improved grip and safety.

When work completes on the Newhurst facility in 2023, it will treat up to 350,000 tonnes of residual waste each year, generating up to 42 megawatts of low carbon energy. That’s enough to power around 80,000 homes.
