Clugston Construction and CNIM are working together on the plant for Veolia Environmental Services in Shropshire. It brings to five the number of such schemes undertaken by Clugston.
The project in Shrewsbury will process 90,000 tonnes of residual waste, unsuitable for recycling or composting, into heat and power. Due to open in 2015, the facility will be adjacent to a household recycling centre and transfer station and is expected to reduce landfill disposal in the county to 5%. Around 200 construction workers will be employed during the building phase.
Donald Macphail, regional director for Veolia, said: “We are excited to now be entering the construction phase and once again to be working with the Clugston CNIM team who are also responsible for the construction of our ErF in Staffordshire which is due to become operational in December this year.”
Clugston has a solid track record in the waste recovery and energy sectors. It has either completed or is constructing ErF projects in Sheffield, Lincolnshire, Staffordshire and Oxfordshire.
