Interserve completes Viridor EfW

Interserve and project partner Babcock & Wilcox has handed over the Dunbar renewable energy plant project to Viridor Enviroscot.

The energy-from-waste (EfW) plant (pictured) can process up to 38 tonnes an hour of municipal waste, and will contribute towards the Scottish Government’s target of sending zero biodegradable municipal waste to landfill by 2021.

Interserve has had problems with its EfW construction business and in 2017 said costs from its problem EfW contracts will “significantly exceed” £160m.

Viridor has been in discussion with Interserve about recovering expenses incurred by delays to construction of the Glasgow Recycling and Renewable Energy Centre. Interserve was removed as contractor on the project in 2016 after failing to meet its targets.
