Burning to know more? Then go on a tour of our plant!

  • Have you always wanted to see a waste incineration plant up close to find out exactly how it works? Then why not go on one of our weekly tours (Wednesdays)! Both individual members of the public and groups (eight or more people) can sign up to visit our plant. Individual members of the public can then join one of the group tours. If you are visiting us as a group, then please download and fill out the list of participants and bring it with you on the day. Please note that groups must also ring us up in advance to book their tour besides filling out the list of participants.

A little bit of theory to begin with, then we’re off!

Our tours begin with a short explanation of how our plant works. At this point, you will also be given a few safety instructions. These are very important as you will be touring the plant while it is in operation. The really exciting part begins after the theory. The tour will take you to our massive waste bunker, past the boiler, which works at temperatures over 1,000°C, and into our control centre – the brains of our operations which receives and stores all the measurements taken throughout the plant.
