Notes: In October 2018 SSE stated that they had begun decomissioning work for their old Combined Heat and Power Plant and that they had obtained planning permission for it to be replaced with a "new Multifuel facility" [Source]. In 2018 they expected construction works to commence in 2019 and to continue for approximately 3 years. According to the SSE website: "The facility will produce electricity and heat through burning waste-derived fuels made from various sources of municipal solid waste, commercial and industrial waste, and waste wood" [Source]. In April 2020 it was announced that SSE had sold a 50% stake in the project to Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners [Source]. A permit for the plant was issued 2016 (EPR/CP3031SX).

Please be aware: There is always room for improvement, so please send updates to coordinator@ukwin.org.uk. Existing Incinerator means a facility that is operational or under construction/commissioning. A Potential Incinerator is a facility where there is a proposal for an incinerator (e.g. planning application or planning consent) or other reason to believe an incinerator might be built/proposed in the future. A Prevented Incinerator is something which used to be a proposal or expected incinerator which we do not believe is currently being progressed (e.g. because the project was cancelled, planning permission refused, or years have gone by since the permission was granted without any progress) - in some cases a facility marked as prevented is being progressed without us being aware or is subsequently revived. Capacity is usually the permitted or maximum advertised capacity of the facility.
