Client North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is looking for specialists who can conduct intrusive ground surveys by vacuum excavation.
The £850,000 for extensive investigative and enabling works will prepare the brownfield site at Edmonton EcoPark for development.
NLWA said a series of intrusive ground investigation works are required following a review of the existing underground utilities.
It added: “These works play a crucial part in delivering the project and the results will help to improve the quality of the design, the ability to construct and the safety of operations on site.”
The winning contractor procured will:
- Provide clarification of any ambiguous information on existing records
- Identify the type, condition, size, depth and orientation of each utility
- Confirm whether the utility is operational or redundant
The overall projecty will see the replacement of the existing energy from waste facility with a new world-class Energy Recovery Facility.
The new facility will convert up to 700,000 tonnes of north London’s non-recyclable waste to energy, diverting it from going to landfill and generating up to 78 megawatts of electricity.
The project also includes a Reuse and Recycling Centre enabling north London residents to bring their recyclable materials directly to the Edmonton EcoPark.
