Clugston Construction, one of the North’s leading privately owned building and civil engineering contractors, with offices in Leeds and Scunthorpe, is pleased to announce it is to start work on a major Energy from Waste (EfW) plant in Lincolnshire. The facility, which is part of a £145M investment plan, will treat up to 150,000 tonnes of household waste per year.
The landmark project, which will dramatically reduce the amount of waste Lincolnshire sends to landfill and will see Clugston Construction working along side its process partner CNIM, to build the EfW plant for Waste Recycling Group (WRG), who were appointed by Lincolnshire County Council. WRG will operate the facility once completed.
Lincolnshire’s first EfW facility will produce enough electricity to power over 10,000 homes and businesses. The Local Authority is also planning to further exploit the potential of the facility to develop a district heating scheme to heat thousands of local homes and businesses.
Steve Radcliffe, managing director of Clugston Construction said:
“Together with our JV partner CNIM, we are delighted to have finalised the contract to design and build the EfW plant for WRG and Lincolnshire County Council. Mr. Radcliffe added, “We have worked closely with our partner CNIM, WRG and Lincolnshire County Council for some time now on the development of this plant and it is exciting that we will be commencing construction very soon.”
Clugston Construction has a strong track record in the Waste and Energy sectors and the project represents a further milestone in the company’s involvement with projects delivering a sustainable environment for the UK.
Work to build the plant on 3.1 hectares of land is expected to begin in April.
