Urbaser Balfour Beatty seeks subbies for £500m Gloucestershire EfW plant

Urbaser Balfour Beatty is seeking contractors for construction and operational work packages for its £500m energy-from-waste plant at Javelin Park in Gloucestershire.

Work is expected start from summer next year, with the £500m facility due to be operational by 2019.

The project is due to create around 300 construction jobs and will treat up to 190,000 tonnes of residual household waste a year from Gloucestershire and produce 116,000 MW hours of electricity annually – enough to power approximately 26,000 homes.

The main process packages have already been agreed with Babcock & Wilcox Vølund and LAB, with the remaining value of work to be procured said to be in the region of £50m.

UBB project director Javier Peiro said: “We are currently working on finalising design elements of our proposed facility and discharging the conditions required of us as part of the planning permission.”

Gloucestershire County Council said: “Our aim is to reach 70 per cent recycling across the county and stop burying waste in the ground completely.”

In January this year, former communities secretary Eric Pickles gave the green light for the project after Gloucestershire County Council’s planning committee had refused it planning permission in March 2013.
