The event is aimed at companies who want to be part of the project which offers a range of construction opportunities over the next 10 years.
Construction work will deliver the North London Heat and Power Project (NLHPP) at Edmonton EcoPark – a 16 hectare site in the Upper Lee Valley.
Companies engaged in the project should work to the highest standards of health and safety, work as a “good neighbour”, be committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, and play a positive role in skills development of their workforce.
The components of the NLHPP are:
- an Energy Recovery Facility (ERF), to be located in the north of the site, which will treat up to 700,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste a year and provide enough energy to provide heat and power for up to 127,000 homes;
- a Resource Recovery Facility (RRF), to be located in the south of the site, which is where bulky waste will be separated for recycling, and will also be the location of a recycling centre for the public and businesses;
- EcoPark House, located near the River Lee Navigation, which will contain office accommodation and a visitors’ centre where people can find out more about recycling, waste, heat, and power; and
- demolition and removal of the existing Energy from Waste (EfW) facility, which is due to reach the end of its operational life around 2025.
The market information day will explain in greater detail NLWA’s proposals for the works for the Resource Recovery Facility (RRF), including a Reuse and Recycling Centre and EcoPark House so that interested companies can engage as soon as practicable in the plans.

NLWA will also be keen to hear from the construction industry on ways in which this project can promote innovation, sustainability, and engagement with the local supply chain.
At this stage NLWA is primarily seeking to engage with main contractors.
Potential subcontractors to these procurements are welcome to submit their company details to firstname.lastname@example.org if they wish for NLWA to pass them on to main contractors.
