Clugston Begins Work on £180m North Wales Energy-from-Waste Facility
Clugston Construction, part of the privately owned Clugston Group, is set to begin work on the building and civil engineering elements of a new £180m Energy-from-Waste (EfW) facility for Wheelabrator Technologies on the Deeside Industrial Park in Flintshire, North Wales.
Wheelabrator Parc Adfer is a combined heat and power facility which will generate around19 MW (gross) of clean, sustainable baseload electricity to power homes and businesses. Once operational, Parc Adfer will be able to process up to 200,000 tonnes per year of non-recyclable waste, generating enough renewable energy to meet the needs of over 30,000 homes.
Wheelabrator will operate the facility over 25 years in a public-private partnership (PPP), with support from the Welsh Government. The facility will serve the five local authorities that make up the North Wales Residual Waste Treatment Project (NWRWTP) – Conwy County Borough Council, Denbighshire County Council, Flintshire County Council, Gwynedd Council and the Isle of Anglesey County Council.
For construction, CNIM was selected by Wheelabrator as the specialist process engineer and CNIM has in turn contracted with Clugston Construction to undertake the building and civil engineering. Site activities commenced in February 2017. The construction phase will create hundreds of additional jobs including around 35 new full-time roles when the plant becomes operational in 2019. This new infrastructure project will also provide significant local and county-wide benefits. The positive economic impact to the local area during construction and operations is expected to exceed multi-million pounds given facilities like this have a number of major and routine maintenance projects each year requiring specialised support from local businesses and contractors
Steve Radcliffe, managing director of Clugston Construction, said: “The Parc Adfer facility is a further example of our growing portfolio of energy-from-waste facility construction projects and is one of the largest we have been involved in. We, together with CNIM, are delighted to have been selected by Wheelabrator to deliver such an important infrastructure project in the region.”
The contract win represents CNIM/Clugston Construction’s latest energy-from-waste plant project, making the company the UK’s most successful contractor in this specialist sector.
