Sustainable energy solutions for the UK market
We provide solutions for waste reduction, energy generation and recycling
MVV Environment, UK branch of German energy company MVV, provides sustainable and efficient solutions for waste-fired energy generation to publicly and privately owned waste disposal companies, and to local authorities. With our subsidiary, we successfully make use of our decades of experience in the British market.
Energy from waste – putting residual waste to good use
Our largest project in the UK so far is the Devonport Energy from Waste Combined Heat and Power Facility in Plymouth. Since 2015, this new facility has been using around 245,000 tonnes of household, commercial and industrial residual waste per year to generate electricity and heat, notably for Her Majesty’s Naval Base Devonport in Plymouth. In the “Partnership Awards”, a renowned award scheme in the UK, our facility was awarded first prize in three categories – in the overall “Best Project” category, in the “Best Waste/Water/Energy Project” category and in the “Best Local Management Team” category.
In Dundee, we have taken over the existing Baldovie Energy from Waste facility and are in the process of developing a new, state of the art facility. From 2020, it will use up to 110,000 tonnes of municipal, commercial and industrial waste as fuel for the generation of usable energy.
Environmentally friendly energy from biomass
Biomass is a key focus of our activities in the British market. This way, we take on our responsibility towards society when it comes to promoting the use of renewable energy. Our biomass power plant at Ridham Dock, Kent, uses 172,000 tonnes of waste and non-recyclable wood per year to generate green electricity and potentially heat as well.
