Clugston are delighted to have recently secured a £7.5 million contract to provide the Civils work for a new bottom ash (BA) processing facility for Ballast Phoenix, who specialise in capturing and reusing the non-hazardous material left over from Energy from Waste plants.
Located at the Ferrybridge Power Station site in Knottingley, West Yorkshire, the new facility will, when complete in summer 2019, process the BA generated by two adjacent Energy from Waste plants. Using Ballast Phoenix’s process, the metals will be extracted from the BA and supplied to metal companies for reuse, whilst the remaining material will be graded into sustainable sources of aggregates for the construction industry.
The central element of the project involves the construction of a 1,700m2 portal frame process and storage building, including a two-storey office area, as well as extensive external hardstanding and logistics infrastructure. Detailed project planning and adherence to site procedures will be required to maintain safe and secure working including regular communication and collaboration with existing operators and construction projects on adjacent sites.
