Vinci wins two UK energy from waste project contracts

Contractor Vinci has won contracts to build two major waste to energy projects in Hertfordshire and North Yorkshire, worth a total of more than €380M (£333M).

In Hertfordshire, Veolia Environmental Services appointed Vinci to design and build a waste treatment centre. The works are due to start in late 2013, with the plant scheduled to begin operating in spring 2016. Some 10% of the waste sent to the facility will be recycled, with the rest being incinerated to produce enough electricity to power the equivalent of 50,000 homes.

In North Yorkshire, waste company AmeyCespa has chosen Vinci for a design and build contract covering the construction of an energy recovery unit and associated buildings, and overall site development, for its Waste Recovery Park. These works are due to start in autumn 2012, with the facility’s entry into service scheduled for late 2015.

The Waste Recovery Park is set to reduce the amount of household waste sent to landfill in the county by 90%, and produce enough electricity to supply up to 40,000 homes.
