29th September 2020
The first of our public exhibitions start this week and the safety of our staff and all visitors is of the utmost importance to us. We have continued to monitor the emerging government guidance and updated our risk assessment accordingly; you can download the risk assessment by clicking here. We have also informed Cambridgeshire and Norfolk constabularies of all event dates, times and locations.
In addition, we have sought a legal opinion on whether holding these events is compatible with the current legal restrictions in place in England to manage the Coronavirus pandemic. The current restrictions are legally enforceable under the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No.2) (England) Regulations 2020 (as amended). Regulation 5(2) states that a gathering of more than six people may take place if it takes place on or at premises which is not a private dwelling and which is operated by a business, a charitable, benevolent or philanthropic institution or a public body. The exception also applies if the gathering takes place on part of premises used for one of those purposes. The full legal opinion can be found here.
Whilst we understand that some people may be reluctant to attend public events at this time, we are confident that we are doing everything in our power to ensure that they are held safely. For those unable to attend in person, all exhibition materials are also available on our website as an interactive exhibition.

Note to Editors:
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.
