Interserve to build £145M Derby waste plant

A joint venture between Interserve and Shanks Group is to build and operate a new waste treatment facility in Derby under a 27-year, £950M public private partnership (PPP) contract.

Resource Recovery Solutions (RRS) has agreed the deal with Derby City and Derbyshire County Councils.

Interserve will now start building the £145M mechanical biological treatment facility and an on-site gasification plant in Sinfin, south Derby, which waste management specialist Shanks will operate, alongside Derby’s existing waste management facilities.

The new facility is expected to be completed by April 2017.

RRS has been providing interim waste management services to the residents of Derby and Derbyshire since 2009 working with the councils to secure planning permission for the new facility.
