Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has won a £10 million contract to provide mechanical and process engineering services to install major equipment items at one of the largest energy-from-waste plants under construction in Europe.
Working for Engineering, Procurement and Construction contractor Keppel Seghers, Interserve will deliver access and mechanical services during phase one of this two-phase project in Runcorn, Cheshire.
The company is also providing other works up to the value of £4 million for the client including access and scaffolding services along with formwork and falsework to the Project - through its Equipment Services division, RMD Kwikform.
The energy-from-waste plant will include a combined heat and power plant capable of processing 420,000 tonnes per year of solid recovered fuel derived from household waste. At full capacity it will be able to supply 270,000 MWh of electricity and 500,000 tonnes of steam per year.
Bill Craig, Interserve Managing Director - Industrial, said: “The plant is one of the largest waste and renewable energy projects in Europe and Interserve’s involvement will consolidate our position as a leading solutions provider in this growing UK market sector.
