Energy recovery plants open doors

Two major energy recovery plants are opening their doors next month as part of the Open Doors programme of allowing public access to major construction sites.

The schemes, in Leeds and Glasgow, are usually inaccessible during construction but will be open to the public on 6-7 March.

Interserve is constructing the £154m recycling and anaerobic digestion centre in Glasgow for Viridor. The plant is designed to treat residual municipal waste in a 25-year contract with the city council.

Clugston Construction is in the process of building an energy recovery facility in Leeds (shown above) for Veolia with an estimated budget of £47m. The facility is set to house a 42m high, arched glulam timber frame which will become the largest timber structure of its type in the UK.

Both facilities are due to open in 2016, and are designed to be able to process approximately 200,000 tonnes of waste annually while generating up to 15MW of electrical power.
