Welcome to the Worcester Area

On behalf of the Worcester area committee, I would like to welcome all IMechE members and their guests to our activities.  The committee organises a broad range of technical lectures, site visits and social events, intended to appeal to engineers and their friends and family.

Our mission on behalf of the national organisation is to promote the Institution and mechanical engineering in general, following the Institution’s  themes of Energy, Environment, Transport, Manufacturing and Education.   We are eager to encourage teachers and their students to understand engineering and consider the profession as a career.

Please visit our website regularly to stay up to date with events and to book places. 

We would welcome your input to guide our planning.  If you have any comments, or would be free to help our committee, please feel free to contact me, or any other committee member by e-mail or phone.

    Severnside Energy Recovery Centre - Bristol
    A guided tour of the energy-from-waste facility at the Severnside energy recovery centre, operated by SUEZ Recycling and Recovery UK Ltd. Find out how this facility generates 34 MW of electricity by recovering the energy from up to 400,000 tonnes per annum of municipal solid (black bag) waste. The majority of waste delivered to the site comes from the 1.6 million people living in the western boroughs of London using closed rail transport containers via a custom built railhead on the site.

    This talk is designed for both those who know about bikes and those who know little, but not for those who don't care! It is light-hearted but entertaining, yet distinctly Engineering-based. The lecture will briefly cover all aspects of motorcycle construction, use and associated industries. We also hope to have a "Zero" electric motorcycle on display!
    Industry: Automobile
