Viridor’s Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) recycling facility in Perth, Scotland is state of the art. TVs, fridges, computers and other domestic appliances are complex. Separating them into their components requires the application of complex technologies and sound processes, an opportunity for Edwards to demonstrate our expertise.

The problem 

Viridor’s refrigeration recycling plant receives hundreds of units per week. When the plant experienced an unplanned shutdown, the backlog of refrigerators rapidly reached a significant size, and kept growing.

The solution 

With a rapid solution required, Edwards prioritised Viridor’s requirements, working longer shifts and weekends. Our team managed the fabrication, re-building and integration of the plant, collaborating with the commissioning equipment manufacturers.

The outcome

The facility was back up and operating within six weeks, enabling the backlog to be brought down to manageable levels.
