The Institution of Mechanical Engineers Devon & Cornwall Area Committee would like to invite you to a technical visit of the Energy from Waste plant based in Devonport, Plymouth.  This tour will be two fold, a presentation about how the facility operates followed by a tour of the facility itself.

On the day we will be led by the knowledgeable Community Liaison Manager Jane Ford, the tour is scheduled to take 1.5 - 2 hours.

Please bring with you a Hi-Vis jacket and wear sensible clothing (Long sleeved clothing is a must otherwise you will not be allowed on site, stout footwear is also a requirement).

**Please remember to book your tickets by using the link at the top of this page - Spaces are limited so be quick!**

We hope that this visit will capture people’s imagination and inspire you to support the activities of the IMechE by supporting our committee.
If you believe that this event will be of interest to your friends, family or colleagues please invite them along (remember to ask them to book their own tickets).

This FREE event is open to members, non-member and the general public.

The committee seeks to bring together aspiring, developing, and experienced engineers, and members of the general public to promote the benefits and achievements of the engineering profession.

The newly formed Cornwall branch will organise a wide portfolio of events and activities, most of which will be open to the general public and free to attend.  These will include evening lectures for general interest; technical visits to local engineering firms; social and professional networking events; engineering competitions; and mentoring opportunities for local students and professional engineers.

In addition, the committee will engage with local schools to support the teaching of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and offer careers advice to young students.


Jane Ford is the Community Liaison Manager for MVV UK. She has a wealth of knowledge regarding the Energy from Waste plant in Plymouth. Her role is to educate the community about how the plant operates and how it is beneficial to the future energy demand of the South West.
