EJ Peak Technology Solutions, part of the Edwin James Group, has won the Xchange 2023 Best Application Award for their Operational Technology project on the North London Heat and Power EcoPark project.
Peak collaborated with EJ Parker Technical Services and our client team (Taylor Woodrow and LondonEnergy), on the North London Heat and Power EcoPark initiative, which aims to revolutionise recycling facilities and waste management. This ambitious project replaces the existing energy-from-waste plant with a cutting-edge EcoPark, including the UK’s greenest Energy Recovery Facility and advanced recycling capabilities.
The Peak team leveraged AVEVA technology and the support from SolutionsPT – Industrial IT to produce a distributed control system that seamlessly integrates the process and the infrastructure across the EcoPark: the Unified Operations Centre provides a cross-functional view of the entire facility, including the Process, the Energy Centre, IT Infrastructure and BMS.
Estela del Rio, Senior Project Manager at Peak, added, “Our goal is to leverage digital technologies to optimise the operations of our world-class recycling facilities. This project not only tackles the climate emergency but also sets a benchmark in sustainable waste management. We’re delighted the team has been recognised in the Xchange awards.”
The project, initiated in 2019, is on track to be completed within the budget, with an estimated cost of £1.4bn. It will have a number of impactful outcomes including:
• Generation of electricity for up to 127,000 homes.
• Provision of heating for up to 60,000 local homes and businesses, eliminating the need for gas boilers.
• Significant improvement in local air quality and carbon savings equivalent to removing 110,000 cars off the road annually.
• Scalable technology to meet future site requirements.
A huge congratulations to the team at Peak for this remarkable achievement and for setting new standards in sustainable technology and environmental stewardship!
