NUTTALL has cleaned up with a £32 million deal to carry out all civil engineering on a new waste-to-energy plant in Colnbrook, near Slough.
Bids from Laing O'Rourke and Hochtief were binned by the Japanese energy-fromwaste specialist Itochu/Takuma, which was appointed by Grundon Waste Management as overall contractor.
Nuttall will put up the new building and its foundations and install elements of the mechanical and electrical operations.
The £100 million plant will recover energy from 400,000 tonnes of waste a year mainly from London and the south-east, producing about 33 MW of electricity from 2008 onwards.
Work will take two and a half years.
