Statutory consultation

25th June 2021
Statutory consultation

We would like to announce the start of our statutory consultation, which is a legal requirement of the DCO application process. Since our non-statutory consultation last year, we have further developed our proposals and incorporated feedback from a variety of stakeholders.

The statutory consultation will run from 28th June 2021 to 13th August 2021 and offers another opportunity for the local community and other stakeholders to have their say on the updated proposals. During the consultation period, we will hold eight public exhibition events where MVV staff will be available to answer questions and listen to concerns. There will be venue-specific risk assessments and appropriate precautions in place, in line with prevailing Government Coronavirus guidance and regulations.

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
