Students and professionals interested in job opportunities in the waste, energy and construction industries attended an open day at the Buckinghamshire Energy from Waste facility on Saturday 3rd October.
Engineering procurement construction company, Hitachi Zosen INOVA (HZI), which designed and built the plant, co-hosted the event with FCC Environment and Buckinghamshire County Council.
The open day included a guided tour of the site by FCC Environment, as well as an exhibition featuring companies involved in its contract and construction including: Buckinghamshire County Council, Hitachi Zosen INOVA (EPC Contractor), Sir Robert Mcalpine Civils Engineering, FSD Electrical Engineering and Engineering Construction Industry Training Board.
FCC Environment Bid Director, Gillian Sinclair, said: “The open day was attended by a wide range of visitors from year 11 students to post graduates, and representatives from HMP Grendon and Springhill as well as Learn Direct.
“Everyone was extremely enthusiastic and the day was a great success providing visitors with a valuable insight about how an Energy from Waste plant works and how to enter three industries that offer a wide range of career opportunities.”
The Buckinghamshire plant uses some of the most advanced energy conversion technology in the world, playing its part in developing the UK’s Energy from Waste infrastructure and providing Buckinghamshire residents with jobs as well as power.
Warren Whyte, BCC Cabinet Member, Planning & Environment, commented on the event: “Open days like this are an excellent opportunity for people to get informed about the opportunities out there in waste, energy and construction as a future career.”
