Pioneering specification for green waste process centre

22 November 2010 No Comment

Why waste time looking for products that meet the requirement of your EFW specification when Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® ticks all the boxes; Shell Green Waste processing plant is the latest example to prove it.

Mersey Valley Power Station

Shell Green Waste processing plant in Widnes is designed to process treated liquid sewage, which travels via underground pipelines from reception plants in the Mersey Valley.  Part of a £90m scheme undertaken by United Utilities, this site redevelopment will protect the environment from concentrate liquors produced from the new dewatering process.

Mersye Valley Process CentreThis pioneering process centre will treat 1,650 kg of ammonia based waste water (Ammonia Nitrate) per day, and the heat produced via the process will be used to generate electricity for the plant, providing around 50% of the facility’s electricity needs. United Utilities are hoping that this pioneering process centre will inspire other utilities to follow suit with their treatment processes making the energy sector greener.

No time was wasted when Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® in White was specified as part of a Eurobond Europanel. Supported by the Confidex® Guarantee, Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® pre-finished steel ensures that the building envelope maintains its external integrity and aesthetic appeal on a project like this for 40 years without ongoing maintenance or inspection costs. Perfect where longevity and aesthetics are key.

A building of this size and function has a significant impact on the surrounding landscape and as a result was designed to be functional with as little impact as possible on the wider Mersey Valley landscape. With over 40 colours inspired by architects, Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® is the ideal choice for buildings located in aggressive environments but which need to look good and blend into the surrounding landscape.

Our backing of the Confidex® Guarantee for up to 40 years proves that this product has the best life cycle cost of any pre-finished steel available in the market. Don’t waste time – what other reasons do you need to specify it?
