The facility will convert 300,000 tonnes of household waste to electricity and hot-water. The structure incorporates a ramp for vehicles to access the incinerator entrance. Contractor Sir Robert McAlpine approached Heat Mat to supply and oversee installation of a ramp heating system for the entrance, allowing year-round access. Specialist constant-Wattage cables with 10m cold tail connections were installed beneath a 210mm concrete and rebar slab. Dual-zone thermostats will control them, and external sensors will monitor conditions for maximum efficiency. Heat Mat will return to the site, due for completion in late 2015, for final commissioning.
