Rodeca helps Peterborough make recovery transparentWork is drawing to a close on the installation of some 1,200m2 of Rodeca’s translucent cladding panels as part of Phase 1 of the £76million Peterborough ERF (Energy Recovery Facility) project.

The 85,000 tonnes per annum facility, close to Peterborough Power Station in Fengate, will accept non-hazardous, post-recycling waste from Peterborough City Council and regional businesses throughout the contract life, generating up to 7.25MW of electricity per year – equivalent to approximately 15% of the annual electricity consumption of the area’s households.

Built to BREEAM sustainability criteria, further enhanced through the use of local supply chains, the project for Viridor on behalf of Peterborough City Council is expected to employ 25 people when complete late this year (2015).

The PC3550-10 Rodeca polycarbonate panels, at 50mm thick and 495mm wide and in the duo-colours Kristall and Petrol, are being installed on all three phases of the two-year build by KGM Roofing for main contractor Interserve. They are capable of delivering U-values as low as 0.80 to 0.89 w/m2k.
