Scunthorpe construction giant Clugston has secured a £7.5 million contract to provide the civils works for a new power station by-product project.
The St Vincent House team will provide a new bottom ash processing facility for Ballast Phoenix, a specialist in capturing and reusing the non-hazardous material left over from waste to energy plants.
Located at the Ferrybridge Power Station site in Knottingley, West Yorkshire, the new facility will, when complete in summer 2019, process the bottom ash generated by two adjacent power stations.
Using Ballast Phoenix’s process, the metals will be extracted and supplied to metal companies for reuse, while the remaining material will be graded into sustainable sources of aggregates for the construction industry.
The central element of the project involves the construction of a 1,700 sq m portal frame process and storage building, including a two-storey office area, as well as extensive external hard-standing and logistics infrastructure.
Clugston has a strong background in energy from waste, having developed several sites across the UK.
Headquartered in Bourne, Lincolnshire, Ballast Phoenix currently operates 11 UK sites.
