Supply Chain event

Parc Adfer Meet the Buyer event – Registration now closed

Businesses interested in the supply chain opportunities being unlocked by Parc Adfer, the new energy recovery facility for North Wales, are being invited to attend a Meet the Buyer event being organised by Wheelabrator Technologies Inc.

Parc Adfer will be developed on the Deeside Industrial Park as part of the North Wales Residual Waste Treatment Project. It received planning permission from Flintshire County Council earlier this year and the development is now moving towards its three year construction phase, which it is hoped will start on site during the first half of 2016.

To help businesses find out more about the opportunities on offer to potential supply chain partners working across Deeside and North Wales, Wheelabrator will hold its Meet the Buyer event in the Conference Centre at Coleg Cambria in Connah’s Quay on Tuesday, 20 October from 07.15 to 19.30.

The event is being held as part of Flintshire Business Week and will be hosted by Wheelabrator in partnership with its civil engineering contractor, Sisk Group and Baumgarte Boiler Systems, which will be delivering the mechanical and electrical aspects of Parc Adfer.

The day will be split into three separate sessions:
07.15 – 10.00 – Construction and civil engineering
11.00 – 15.00 – Ancillary and site support services
17.00 – 19.30 – Construction and civil engineering

Delegates will have the opportunity to meet individually with representatives of the three host companies to discuss their skills and experience, while finding out more about the likely approach to procurement for the Parc Adfer supply chain.

More information about Sisk and Baumgarte Boiler System


Sisk Group will be the principal civil engineering contractor for Parc Adfer and has been managing construction projects in the energy sector for nearly half a century.

While conventional energy schemes dominated its work in the early years, Sisk has expanded its scope and has now built up a wide range of experience in renewable energy – wind farms, biomass and energy from waste – as well as supply grid infrastructure.

The company has also completed a number of projects in North Wales, working recently on the new state-of-the-art loading bay for the Airbus Beluga Super Transporter at Broughton.

It is also managing the construction of National Grid’s Flintshire Bridge converter station on the Deeside Industrial Park, working on land that was formerly part of Shotton Steelworks.

Work on these projects, and others like them, means that Sisk has established a good track record of identifying and working with supply chain partners across North East Wales. In working on the Parc Adfer project, it will be looking to build on these existing relationships as well as identifying new local partners.

Baumgarte Boiler Systems GmbH will supply the mechanical and electrical aspects of Parc Adfer.

Baumgarte is a 100 per cent subsidiary of the Standardkessel Baumgarte Holding GmbH and is owned by JFE Engineering Group.

Standardkessel Baumgarte supplies turn-key power plants and power plant components for industrial and municipal energy supply. Coal, gas and oil as well as alternative fuels such as biomass, biological residues or municipal waste and commercial and industrial residues are used for generating clean energy in an environmentally friendly way.

Baumgarte’s field of activities are focused on thermal municipal waste treatment (MSW) and refuse derived fuels (RDF). The objective of the company is the planning, design, supply, installation and commissioning of plants and plant components for the generation of steam or hot water for industrial and municipal applications and energy supply.

Baumgarte is among the leading companies in the field of intelligent boiler technologies and has recently completed work on the Devonport energy from waste facility in Plymouth. That facility is similar in certain respects to Parc Adfer as it has been built on behalf of the South West Devon Waste Partnership to provide a waste treatment solution for the disposal of non-recyclable waste from Plymouth, Devon and Torbay.
