Vinci Environment UK, which is partly owned by VINCI Construction UK, has won contracts worth around £330 million to build waste treatment facilities.
AmeyCespa has selected Vinci for the design and build of an waste recovery unit near York. The deal includes overall site development and civil engineering for the buildings of the future multi-stream Waste Recovery Park that will serve North Yorkshire.
It aims to cut household waste destined for landfill by 90 per cent and produce enough electricity to supply up to 40,000 homes. Work is due to start in autumn 2012 and the plant is set to open in 2015.
At the same time, Veolia Environmental Services has appointed Vinci to design and build a waste treatment centre in Hertfordshire, which could power 50,000 homes. The contractor will start work on the project in late 2013.
