TV2 is an advanced gasification facility in Teesside which provided the North East of England with cutting edge facilities for the sustainable production of energy from waste in the UK.
The TV2 site covers an area of approximately 5.1 hectares with the TV1 facility located to the immediate east of the TV2 main area.
Following the successful completion of the civils work package on the Tees Valley 1 Energy From Waste Project, the client negotiated the TV2 works with Tolent.
Tolent was contracted to undertake a large civil engineering package on the site, which was previously used for the tipping of slag.
The project at the TV2 Energy from Waste Plant comprised c.800 piles (20-25m long), large reinforced concrete bases (up to 1100m3 pours), a myriad of smaller bases and pile caps, large reinforced concrete structures (up to 15m high), large diameter underground GRE pipe work, fire mains, traditional drainage, underground electrical services, substations, 9 plant and storage buildings weigh bridges and roads.
Shortly before this project was to be completed the client decided to suspend all works until they had achieved satisfactory operation of the sister plant on the adjacent site (TV1).
