SELCHP incinerator / power plant, Rotherhithe
The SELCHP (South East London Combined Heat and Power) plant incinerates refuse from several London Boroughs and generates power from it.
SELCHP is an incineration plant located in South Bermondsey. SELCHP is an acronym for "South East London Combined Heat and Power" energy recovery facility. The combined heat and power system was designed for a district heating scheme that has never been implemented and the plant generates only electricity. The plant can generate up to 35 MW of power using a steam turbine. It can take up to 420,000 tonnes per year of municipal solid waste.
In 1986, faced with the increasing scarcity and environmental problems of landfill, the local authorities of Lewisham, Southwark, and Greenwich came together to search for and identify a realistic alternative. In 1988, they formed an organisation - the South East London Combined Heat and Power Consortium - from which SELCHP now takes its name.
SELCHP is currently operated by Veolia Environmental Services.
