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 modern and efficient facility has been using up to 265,000 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 have built a new, state of the art facility alongside it. From 2022, the two facilities will use up to 220,000 tonnes of municipal, commercial and industrial waste per year for the generation of usable energy.
We are currently in the early stages of developing a new Energy from Waste facility in Wisbech (Cambridgeshire). Actual information on the project can be found on our separate website. Our UK team will be happy to answer any queries concerning the project.
Environmentally friendly energy from biomass
Biomass is another key focus of our activities in the British market and demonstrates our responsibility towards society when it comes to promoting the use of renewable energy. Our biomass power facility at Ridham Dock, Kent, uses up to 195,000 tonnes of waste and non-recyclable wood per year to generate green electricity and potentially heat as well.
