Galliford Try has been awarded the £33 million contract to design and build an advanced anaerobic digestion plant for Northumbrian Water.
In partnership with Imtech Process, the company will complete work on the Howdon Sewage Treatment Works in Newcastle-upon-Tyne by September 2012.
Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “We are delighted to secure Northumbrian Water as a new client for our water business. This significant project builds on our track record in delivering both clean and waste water infrastructure projects.”
The company is now one of the largest contractors in the water industry, working under five year asset management programmes as well as on single projects for seven of the country’s major water utility businesses.
