The Kelvin Facility


West Bromwich, Sandwell West Midlands

Google Maps Directions

Kelvin is a waste-to-energy facility in Sandwell West Midlands in construction, which was granted planning consent in September 2019 and acquired from developer Verus Energy in 2021. When operational, it will divert 395,000 tonnes of non-recyclable household and business waste from landfill or export overseas. Instead, it will use residual waste to generate 44MW (gross) of renewable baseload energy per annum, equivalent to the needs of more than 95,000 UK homes.

Located on a site owned by Giffords Property, the facility is strategically located to treat non-recyclable waste from a catchment area which has a projected capacity shortfall of over 2M tonnes per annum. We’re expecting to begin construction in the second half of 2021.
