Polymer Processing Centre
As part of our plans for the Orthios Eco Park in Holyhead, we are tackling the problem of UK and EU plastic wastes by converting them to oils. Orthios has approval to use the existing c.600,000 ft2 former aluminium pot line buildings to process plastic feedstock into high value products.
During the last 2 years we have undertaken a detailed assessment of a number of polymer processing technologies and have partnered with a proven technology provider, in addition to engaging with leading engineering and environmental consultants. We have also completed the engineering design and are in the final stages of pre-construction activities. It is envisaged that we will commence with a live project later this year.
Orthios Modular Air Compression Centre
Orthios have been working with technology experts for an array of wind turbine storage technologies. We intend to develop the area above the Polymer Processing Centre and store the wind's energy as compressed air and electricity for distribution to the grid.
The energy stored as compressed air will also aid efficient pumping of water in the planned hydroponics and aquaculture facilities. The new design of wind capture is quiet, bird and bat friendly and highly efficient and will create jobs at Holyhead in its assembly and maintenance.
Part of the unique nature of the site at Holyhead is its proximity between road, rail and the Port of Holyhead. Orthios are working towards a solution to provide a rail freight terminal using the sites existing sidings and rail line access to reduce road traffic on and off the island of Anglesey, providing additional jobs and revenue.
