Lostock sustainable energy plant

The Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant (LSEP) in Greater Manchester.

The plant is designed to provide renewable electricity to power 125,000 homes. Appointed in 2019, by P.J. Carey Ltd, we have now handed over the new infrastructure to the project partners TATA, Inovyn & Imerys at the Lostock site.

Once operational, LSEP will recover energy safely and cleanly, diverting 600,000 tonnes of residual waste from landfill. The plant will produce renewable electricity constantly, making it a more reliable source of energy than that gained from wind or solar power.

Offsite manufacturing

This is the latest project to benefit from our industry leading offsite capabilities and in- house manufacturing facility. One of our notable achievements on this project was the manufacture and installation of ‘super-module’ services bridges. 

Each module is 14m long by 5m wide and a comprehensive logistical master plan was developed working with Greater Manchester Police and Merseyside Police in order to transport these super-modules to site. These modules are the largest we have manufactured and installed to date, taking nearly 60,000 labour hours off site.

First class mechanical, electrical and plumbing services

The full enabling package also saw the installation of pipework services, HV and LV equipment and transformers as well as reactors.

P.J. Carey Ltd were keen to work with us following our successful delivery of major projects including contracts with E.ON Connecting Energies. This involved mechanical and electrical design and installation services on the largest combined heat and power project undertaken by E.ON in the UK. The customer was also impressed by our wider experience of delivering high value, technically complex, industrial projects.

We are highly adept when it comes to delivering major enabling works and infrastructure projects of this calibre.

I believe the key to our successful delivery of LSEP’s enabling works, was our early engagement with the supply chain and our ability to identify HV specialists that would support our in-house team with the migration of new building services into existing services.

The LSEP will contribute to the Government’s strategy to reduce landfill and the export of waste as well as contributing to the country’s effort to reduce the effects of climate change and it’s extremely gratifying to know that we are playing our part and that our efforts will result in the provision of electricity to 125,000 homes in the region.”
