New images reveal how a proposed £150 million energy from waste plant could look.
A site on the city’s Greenbank Crescent in East Tullos has been earmarked for the facility which will generate heat and power from waste that cannot be recycled to provide low-cost energy.
A planning application has been lodged by Aberdeen City Council, although it is awaiting validation, to build the facility at the derelict industrial site in East Tullos.
The design and access statement for the application said the views of ground-level activities within the site would be “extremely limited”.
It added: “However, the main building roof and stack would be visible from a larger area given the height of these structures which rise above much of the built form within the surrounding industrial estate.”
The report suggests, as the proposed building is large in scale, it has been designed to become a “new, high-quality, visual and civic landmark”.
The plans also reveal operations would run 24 hours a day, seven days a week with waste deliveries carried out by HGVs between 7am and 7pm Monday to Friday and 7am to 1pm on Saturdays.
