AWM successful in tender bid with Hitachi Zosen
Following on from the successful completion of the first energy-from-waste plant (EfW) in Ferrybridge (UK), the Swiss clean-tech company Hitachi Zosen Inova has received the order to construct the second facility. The company’s ninth project in the UK will mark a new milestone. The complete plant, consisting of a total of four lines, ranks among Europe’s largest and most efficient EfW plants.
After the successful construction of Ferrybridge Multifuel 1 (FM1) in 2015, the kick off for Ferrybridge Multifuel 2 (FM2) has become reality. The engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract has been awarded to Swiss Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI), which already provided its first-class technology for FM1 and served as general contractor. The contract between HZI and the client SSE plc came into force on June 30, 2016. “HZI proved itself to be an exceptionally constructive and reliable partner in the realization of FM1. We therefore have absolute confidence in working with them again and anticipate as with FM1 that jobs will be created either direct or indirect as a consequence of the FM2 project” said Charlie Cryans, Head of Construction for SSE UK and Ireland.
With a remarkable boiler capacity of 117.4 MWthermal, FM2 will achieve the same outstanding efficiency as its sister plant.
AWM pitched against all the major regional and national waste management businesses. Following a rigorous tender process AWM were awarded the 2 year contract with HZI that will see the removal of circa 700 tonnes of waste over the period.
Supply started in October2016 and the facility is scheduled to open in 2018.

What our customers say
Paul Speake Sheridan UK
“We’ve worked with AWM for many years and always find the service prompt and reliable. The reporting and compliance details are important for our business, and we’re keen to keep our recycling rates as high as possible.”
Ben Lukey AMA Waste Services
“AWM are our preferred waste disposal partner in the West Yorkshire area. They have provided waste and aggregate services on a daily basis for AWM Waste for a number of years now. It is critical for a company like ourselves to have services carried out by reliable and professional suppliers, our clients include Blue Chip Companies and High Street Brands and it’s therefore imperative that our services are supplied on time in a professional manner, whilst meeting the highest health and safety standards. There is no better example of one of our suppliers meeting this criteria than AWM, who put drivers through extensive training and who have an excellent customer service team in our office. AWM have invested in cutting edge recycling technology at their premises and have one of the most impressive set ups we have seen across the UK. Everyone at AMA Waste could not recommend AWM highly enough and we look forward to working with them for many more years.”
Louise Hartley Leeds Beckett University
“Leeds Beckett University have been working in partnership with AWM since February 2014 and during this time we have not only received excellent service, but have also seen our working relationship grow. During the mobilisation period, AWM worked very hard to understand and accommodate the needs of the University. We moved from a single waste stream to segregating general, food and dry recycling so AWM worked with us to help educate both staff and students in the changes. We expected the transition to take longer than it did, but I credit the success to the initial planning that both organisations took.
