Update from CERC

January 04th 2018

The Parish Council have received the following email. Any queries should be directed to Suez in the first instance.

Dear All

On Wednesday 27 December, a section of roof cladding at the Cornwall Energy Recovery Centre (CERC) was damaged, which was caused by strong winds.  An early inspection confirmed that the roof remains structurally sound and presents no danger.  Temporary repairs were made on Thursday 28 December and we anticipate that permanent repair work will start next week, subject to suitable weather conditions and availability of materials.

Residual waste deliveries have continued throughout, although the plant did stop exporting energy to the National Grid for a short while as a precautionary measure when the incident occurred.

Some insulation material was blown loose during the incident and we mobilised a work party to clear up any wind-blown debris that escaped the site.  Whilst this was clearly regrettable, we would like to reassure you that it posed no safety risk to members of the public or our staff.

The damage is now being fully investigated to establish and rectify the underlying cause.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards

Natalie Chard

Community Liaison Manager
