The Parish Council have received the following e-mail. All queries should be directed to Suez.

Dear forum members,

We are pleased to report that following the fault experienced with the facility’s turbine in late June, the repairs to the turbine’s rotor have been completed.  The facility will be shut down over the coming weekend (Sunday 09 September and Monday 10 September) to allow the turbine to be safely reinstalled, and the facility’s two lines will be brought back into service next week.  Once both lines are back in service, the turbine will be restarted and the facility will recommence generating electricity.

The re-start process involves gradually heating each line until it reaches the required temperature to process waste.  During this controlled heating process, low pressure steam will be released from the facility until the steam reaches the correct pressure to pass through the air cooled condenser fans.  Furthermore when the turbine is restarted there is the potential that some high pressure steam may be released. As such, you may see steam coming from the facility at intervals accompanied by low level noise as the steam is released. 

If you have any queries, please call 01726 828 230 or email cornwallhelpdesk@sita.co.uk

Kind regards,

Emma Jordan
Corporate Affairs Manager South
