  • Preparation and supervision of the Preliminary Site Investigation for the scheme
  • Traffic Assessments
  • Tunnel Feasibility Study
  • Bridge Feasibility Study for Lee Crossing

FT was part of a Joint Venture (JV) with Giffords & Rambøll, appointed by Lincolnshire County Council as Technical Advisor for the procurement of a suitable contractor to design, build and operate the EfW Plant.  FT’s responsibilities included:

  • Assisting the Council in the selection of the Contractor utilising the Competitive Dialogue Procedure
  • Monitoring the design solution developed by the Contractor, to provide assurance that the proposed solution is sufficient to fulfil the Councils requirements
  • Monitoring the construction of the EfW facility by the Contractor and certifying payments
  • Supervising the commissioning of the EfW facility
  • Ensuring that the Contractor carried out its operational and maintenance obligations during the first two years after certification of the EfW facility.

In discharging the above responsibilities, the Technical Advisor’s role was underpinned by taking a proactive lead in conjunction with the Council’s staff and the other advisors in relation to the following key strands of the project:

  • Effective identification and management of risk
  • Effective engagement with the market in order to secure a good solution
  • Establishing and articulating the Council’s detailed objectives and requirements and securing these through the procurement process
  • Ensuring that the design solution developed by the Contractor meets the Council’s requirements and is subsequently delivered to the required standards.

In addition to providing a sustainable, safe and affordable waste treatment solution, the facility will generate 15 megawatts (MW) of green electricity for sale to National Grid.
