Oldhall Energy Recovery Facility
Doveryard is proposing to develop an Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) on the Oldhall Industrial Estate, Irvine, on a site allocated for business or industry, that would prevent local waste from going to landfill.
The facility would generate enough electricity for the equivalent of over 30,000 homes, more than all the residential properties in Irvine, heat that can be used by nearby businesses, and make use of a site that has previously been consented for energy recovery from waste.
It would also divert around 180,000 tonnes per year of waste which would otherwise go to landfill or be exported to Europe for treatment; waste which has already been sorted to remove valuable recyclables, such as glass, metal, plastic, paper and card.
Oldhall ERF would provide around 200 full-time jobs during construction and 20 new full-time jobs during operation.
We’re holding a consultation between 28 May and 25 June 2019 to listen to the views of local businesses and residents. We’ll then take the comments we receive into consideration before submitting our planning application to North Ayrshire Council.
