We have today announced the acquisition of an anaerobic digestion (AD) facility at Westcott Park, Buckinghamshire from Renewi plc.
Westcott Park will be Olleco’s third AD facility in addition to our sites at Aylesbury and Liverpool. The facility has capacity to process 96,000 tonnes of food waste each year and produce up to 3.2 Mw of green electricity and 4.8Mw of renewable heat which is enough to power 6,000 homes.
Commenting on the acquisition, Robert Behan, Managing Director of Olleco, said, “Olleco is delighted to make this acquisition, which will provide added capacity and improve the service we provide to our 50,000 customers across the UK. The move will also complement our existing operations in nearby Aylesbury and in Liverpool. Today’s announcement is also a significant development from an ABP Food Group perspective as it further demonstrates the company’s renewable energy strategy and is another practical example of the circular carbon economy in action.”
