The North London Waste Authority (NLWA) is looking for contractors to work on a new £500m waste facility.
It has announced that a market information event will take place on 9 October for contractors looking to work on its North London Heat and Power Project (pictured).
The event will focus on construction of EcoPark House, which includes office accommodation and a visitors’ centre for people to learn about waste, heat, power and recycling.
NLWA manages the disposal of waste collected by seven London boroughs: Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest.
The 10-year project will also see works at the Edmonton EcoPark on the River Lee, including the demolition of an existing bulk waste recycling facility and fuel preparation plant at the northern end of Edmonton EcoPark.
Works are estimated to cost between £450m-£500m.
Other parts of the project include the construction of a resource recovery facility, and a reuse and recycling centre
According to the authority, the two million residents living in the seven boroughs generate more than 800,000 tonnes of waste and recycling each year.
Registrations for the event close on Monday 7 October, firms looking to register can do so here.
The value of the works involved will be confirmed at the event.
