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.
