Local Liaison Committee launched

Updated: 11 July 2019

Earls Gate Energy Centre is seeking community representatives to join a liaison committee for its new energy recovery facility.

The committee will gather feedback and opinions from local residents and provide information to the community during construction, through commissioning and into the facility’s operational phase. It will meet on a regular basis with the aim of ensuring the project proceeds with minimal impact and disruption to the local community.

Project Director, Mathieu Catalano, said: “We want to be a good neighbour and, although we expect construction work to cause very little disruption, we want to meet regularly with local residents to answer any questions, listen to their feedback and keep them informed of progress.

“We’re very keen that all areas of interest are represented and I’d like to encourage anybody with a local connection and a genuine interest in helping the construction project run smoothly, to contact us.”

The committee will meet around once a quarter although there may be occasional extra meetings when the need arises. Places are limited so those interested in joining are asked to email to request an application form.

The deadline for responses is Monday 12th August and the first meeting will take place shortly afterwards.

More information is available on the Local Liaison Committee page.

Piling Work

Updated: 11 June 2019

We recently started piling work to lay deep foundations. In order to complete this work as quickly as possible and to comply with our planning conditions, piling will run daily from Monday to Saturdays until mid-November this year. We are doing everything we can to shorten this timescale and finish earlier.

This work is a necessary and unavoidable stage of the construction process and we hope you will bear with us. If you need to contact us at any time, please email or phone 0131 618 8878 and we will do what we can to minimise disturbance.

Jobs Fair

Updated: 16 May 2019

In May 2019, we held a jobs fair for people to find out about construction-related jobs opportunities and longer term employment prospects at the facility.

If you were unable to attend the event, but are still interested in a role during the construction phase, please visit our contact page where you will find further details on how to submit your CV.

Meet the Buyer

Updated: 22 March 2019

In March 2019, we held a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event for local suppliers to meet our procurement teams and explore opportunities to bid for the contracts that will be offered over the course of the project.

A wide range of goods and services will be needed including catering services, office supplies, cleaning and accommodation, as well as engineering and construction.

If you missed the event but are interested in registering as a potential supplier, you can still send us your company details.
