According to Covanta Energy (2011), the Rookery South EfW Generating Station will be able to “convert approximately 585,000 tonnes of residual waste per year into 65MWe of electricity, of which 55MWe would be exported to the national grid. That’s enough electricity equivalent to meet the needs of Bedford and the Marston Vale.” meaning, approximately 82,500 houses (About the Project, para. 2). As far as the size and construction, Covanta Energy did not want to hinder or takeaway from any long-distance views. Therefore, the designers decided on a building made up of boxes that interlock (See Figure 1), to reduce the height of the structure as much as possible. the other option was a 3-stack building. Still, with 9 times the total capacity per annum of the Isle of Man EfW facility, the current design is approximately 2m lower than “the visible height above ground level of the Isle of Man EfW Facility” (Covanta Energy, 2011).
