MVV extends consultation on its Medworth energy from waste proposal

14th September 2020
MVV extends consultation on its Medworth energy from waste proposal

MVV has announced a second non-statutory consultation period on its proposed Medworth Energy from Waste Combined Heat and Power facility. As part of the early stages of the pre-planning process for the proposal, MVV Environment Ltd undertook an initial period of consultation earlier this year. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and associated restrictions, the planned public exhibitions had to be postponed.

MVV’s Managing Director, Paul Carey, said, “Engaging with a wide range of stakeholders has remained a priority throughout this difficult time. We can now announce that a second non-statutory consultation period will commence this week. There will also be a further consultation opportunity, early next year, before MVV finalises its planning application in autumn 2021.”

The second non-statutory consultation period will run from 18th September to 29th October 2020. It will incorporate seven public exhibitions over the weeks commencing 28th September and 12th October 2020. There will be venue-specific risk assessments and appropriate precautions in place, in line with prevailing government Coronavirus guidance.

About MVV

With a work force of almost 6000 employees and an annual turnover of around € 4 billion, MVV’s core business comprises the distribution of energy, natural gas and water in Mannheim and other cities, the generation of Energy from Waste (EfW) and other energy projects with a focus on renewables such as onshore wind power and energy efficiency.

MVV Umwelt, a subsidiary company of MVV, has over 50 years’ experience in building and operating waste management facilities in Germany, and is one of the top three companies in Germany in its field. “Umwelt” is the German word for environment, so it operates as MVV Environment in the United Kingdom. In Germany, MVV Umwelt operates five EfW (taking residual household waste) and Biomass (taking waste wood) facilities, treating 1.6 million tonnes of waste and biomass a year.

MVV entered the UK market in October 2008, bidding primarily for public sector waste contracts across the country. Now established as a responsible and growing group of companies in the UK, MVV operates three EfW and Biomass facilities treating over 500,000 tonnes of household residual waste and biomass a year. MVV is in the pre-application stage of developing its fourth project in Wisbech to deliver a joint waste management solution and combined heat and power facility in the Medworth ward of Fenland District Council.
