About

This website hosts information about the construction of Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant. The facility will be built by CNIM Group, a leading European specialist on the design and construction of power plants. For information about the owners and operators of the plant, and the plans behind it, please visit https://lostocksep.fccenvironment.co.uk/.

LSEP is a 69.9MW energy from waste (EfW) facility located at the Lostock Works site near Northwich, in Cheshire.

It will recover energy cleanly and safely from approximately 600,000 tonnes of residual waste – the waste left over after reusable and recyclable material has been removed.

The facility is a £480m project and one of the largest investments at the Lostock site. It is funded through a joint venture between Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and FCC Environment.

A joint venture between two major construction companies, CNIM and Clugston, was formed to build the facility but unfortunately, Clugston went into administration in December 2019. To ensure the uninterrupted continuation of construction and the successful delivery of the project, CNIM has taken on Clugston’s employees at this and four other sites in the UK. Enabling works to prepare the site for construction are being undertaken by the Carey Group.

As contracts are let, there will be employment opportunities throughout the construction phase, depending on the skills required. Please contact us if you are interested in supply or employment opportunities or have any queries.
