Protos Energy Recovery Facility invites local businesses to ‘Meet the Buyer’

1 November 2021

The builders of Protos Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) near Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, are holding a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event at the Vale Royal Suite at the Best Western, Forest Hills Hotel, Overton Hill, Frodsham, Cheshire, WA6 6HH on Tuesday 9th November from 10.30am to 6.30pm.

The Protos ERF will generate up to 49 megawatts of electricity – enough to power 90,000 homes – by processing up to 400,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste each year.

The facility is being built through a joint venture between MYTILINEOS and Standardkessel Baumgarte GmbH (SBG). Both companies are internationally recognised for their expertise in the energy sector. 

During construction, the project will need to use many different subcontractors and it is keen to work with local suppliers wherever possible. Services such as office supplies, cleaning, accommodation, catering and health & safety expertise will all need to be bought as well as goods and services that are more typically associated with construction and engineering, such as scaffolding, concrete and mechanical and electrical services.

At the event, representatives from the purchasing teams of both MYTILINEOS and SBG will be available to discuss upcoming contracts and estimated timescales. Anyone wishing to attend should register and book a time slot in advance via the project website – - as visitor numbers will be controlled through the day to support social distancing and avoid congestion at peak times.

Businesses that are unable to attend, but are still interested in bidding for contracts, can email with details of the goods and services they offer.
