More often than not, news stories about developments talk about delays in build – but not for O.C.O 

Since consent was issued for our new site in Wretham in September, we have been incredibly busy. 

With a £6m investment just for stage one of this build, we were keen to get going.  The new plant will capture over 5,000 tonnes of CO2 every year – that’s the equivalent of planting 225,000 trees and offsets 2.1 million car journeys!

Specialist equipment was ordered in good time ready for installation to begin as soon as consent was granted and contracts for the foundation and site works have now been signed with local firm Liam Lambert Construction.  We are hoping to use local businesses when we can.

The planning required a “Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP)” to be agreed and once this was accepted, we could start – and we did. 

We immediately demolished an old workshop and store and have dug footings for the silos which are being manufactured off site right now.  All work is now being overseen by a newly appointed Construction Site Manager.

In preparation for the Wretham site being operational and to strengthen our existing team while we are in Brandon, we are actively recruiting.

We have immediate start vacancies for multiskilled maintenance engineers along with general operatives to work in the plant itself. These vacancies are currently at our Brandon site but will be transferred to Wretham later in the year.  If you or someone you know is interested in finding out more, please email
