Brite Partnership North East has awarded the £150M contract to build a biomass power plant in Rotherham to a joint venture between construction firm Interserve and Babcock & Wilcox Vølund.
Work on the 45MW ‘Brite’ plant at Templeborough, Rotherham, should be complete in the second quarter of 2017. The plant will power up to 70,000 homes using locally sourced waste wood.
Interserve commercial director Andy Jarman said: “Projects of this type are highly technical and challenging, requiring key expertise to construct, operate and maintain . This is why we have formed a strategic partnership with Babcock & Wilcox Vølund who will operate and maintain the Brite plant from 2017.”
