JSM working to deliver a new Electric Supply System in Dartford


JSM group has been appointed to install a new 132kV electrical supply system for the Riverside 2 energy from waste (EfW) facility.

The electrical supply will run from Cory’s Riverside 2 facility in Belvedere and terminate at the Littlebrook substation in Dartford on behalf of Cory and UK Power Networks (UKPN).

Riverside 2 will be one of the largest and most efficient EfW facilities in the UK, employing 140 personnel from the area, processing 650,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste and generating enough electricity to power 176,000 homes each year. The facility will utilise well-established moving grate technology. This technology has been successfully deployed across numerous operational EfW facilities in the UK.

Over 3 million tonnes of London’s waste must either be landfilled or sent overseas, and the Riverside 2 project will provide vital capacity to help address this. It will also help to achieve the goals set out in the London Plan which aim for 100% of London’s waste to be processed within its boundaries by 2026.

We apologies for the disruption this has caused and are working hard with key stakeholders including London Borough of Bexley to ensure minimum disruption to the public. We are working extended hours 7 days a week to ensure they are completed as soon as possible and will be providing a live website that shows the works programme and the live closures.

As the works progress, we will provide weekly updates via the website to assess suitable changes showing where the works are and changes to the traffic network.
