Please arrive in time for the 10am start, to ensure we stick to the program.

Everyone is encouraged to bring their own PPE. Site clothing requirements are long sleeve shirt, long pants and closed flat-heeled shoes. If you are wearing the incorrect clothing (no shorts or t-shirts!), you will either be required to wear clothing/coveralls provided, or will not be allowed to participate in the site tour. You will also be required to wear hi vis, hard hat and safety glasses for the site tour.

A site map and access instructions for attendees is available here. We have been asked to encourage people to car-pool where possible, as the car parking near the plant is at a premium.

The day is proudly being supported by Ixom and Watersure.
