Indaver Ireland – Waste-to-Energy Facility, Ringaskiddy, Co. Cork

Indaver Ireland has plans to construct a waste-to-energy facility on a 12 hectare site at Ringaskiddy for the treatment of industrial, commercial and household wastes and the recovery of energy.

In 2010 Indaver Ireland lodged a Strategic Infrastructure Development application seeking permission for the construction of a waste-to-energy facility for hazardous and non-hazardous waste and a transfer station facility. The facility proposed to process up to 240,000 tonnes per annum of residual waste and produce approximately 22 megawatts of electricity.

McCutcheon Halley was responsible for the preparation of the planning policy chapter of the Environmental Impact Statement, provided advice on all planning policy aspects of the proposed development and appeared as an expert witness at An Bord Pleanála’s Strategic Infrastructure Development Oral Hearing, which included appearing for cross-examination and also cross-examining the 3rd party’s planning experts.
