One of the North’s leading privately owned building and civil engineering contractors, Clugston Construction – with offices in Leeds, Scunthorpe and Hebburn Tyne and Wear – is pleased to announce it has been given permission to commence construction of its third multimillion pound Energy from Waste (EfW) facility this year. This time the facility is in Oxfordshire.
Working in joint venture with French technology partner CNIM, who will provide the process equipment, the new facility will be constructed for, and operated by Viridor, one of the UK’s leading recycling, renewable energy and waste management companies. On completion it will provide an essential, long-term alternative to landfill disposal for Oxfordshire council.
The project is the third EfW development scheme of its kind to be secured by the joint venture in less than twelve months, having already started projects in Staffordshire and Lincolnshire earlier in the year. And reinforces Clugston’s strategic vision to develop it’s presence in the sector, representing a further milestone in the company’s involvement with projects delivering a sustainable environment for the UK.
Once constructed the plant will divert from landfill at least 95 per cent of the residual waste delivered to the facility, while also generating 24 megawatts of electricity – enough electricity to power over 38,000 households.
Steve Radcliffe, managing director of Clugston Construction commented:
“We are delighted with the approval to commence site activities, which means we look forward to starting construction works on another exciting EfW project with our partner CNIM.”
