Costain wins Cory EfW contract

Cory Environmentals £350 million Belvedere energy-from-waste project can get into full swing with the award of a £120 million contract to one of the countrys oldest construction groups, Costain.

The building company announced it had won a £120 million contract from Von Roll Inova, the Swiss plant construction group, to design and build the site in south east London.

Work began on the Riverside Resource Recovery facility last month and, on completion, it will be able to process up to 585,000 tonnes of Londons residual waste from 2011 enough to supply 66,000 homes with electricity.

It will also enable the majority of waste to be transported by river in place of more than 100,000 lorry trips per year.

Costain will contribute to the main design, site infrastructure and building works for the main building, jetties, roads and offices.

Chief executive Andrew Wyllie said: This contract award is an important step forward in the development of Costains activities in the waste market. It significantly strengthens our credentials for future work in the expanding area of cleaner energy generation and waste resource management.
