DONG Energy successfully recruits team for new REnescience Northwich facility

7th March, 2017
DONG Energy’s recruitment drive to appoint 25 new staff for its new facility, REnescience Northwich has been a success.

The new energy plant, currently under construction, launched their recruitment campaign in September with an employment event which was attended by over 200 people.

Since that time, the team received a significant number applications for the technical and administrative roles at the plant.

Final decisions and job offers were made in December, and the new team – mostly based in the Cheshire area - began work at the plant in January.

Colin Walker, Plant Manager at DONG Energy, said:

“We were really pleased by the response to our recruitment campaign – to have all the team now on board before the plant begins operation is a really positive start for us.

“It is fantastic that a high proportion of the new team lives locally to Northwich as well. Our aim is always to recruit within the locality as far as we can, so this is good news.

“Although all the vacancies are now filled, interested applicants can look at our website where any future vacancies will be advertised - ”

The REnescience Plant Northwich is a new waste treatment facility, which will separate household waste from recyclable materials and generate energy at the same time. The plant, which is being constructed by DONG Energy, will use DONG Energy’s patented REnescience technology and will be the first full-scale bio plant in the world capable of handling household waste through enzymes, mechanical sorting and anaerobic digestion.

Construction on the new bio resource facility began in April last year and the site expects to be operational by May 2017.
