Team chosen for Aberdeen incinerator

Three Scottish councils have named the preferred bidder for a £150m incinerator project near Aberdeen.

A consortium led by Spanish construction company Acciona was chosen after a two-year procurement process by the NESS Energy Project team for Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council and Moray Council.

Acciona will build the facility, which will be operated by waste firm Indaver under a 20-year contract. The plant will take non-recyclable waste from the three council areas, sending power to a district heating network.

It is will be built on a site in East Tullos by 2022. Planning permission was granted in 2016 and the three councils took a final decision last March to proceed.

Project director Linda Ovens said: “I’m delighted that we have identified a high-quality, affordable solution for the councils, and look forward to finalising the details with Acciona in the coming months. This is a significant project for the north-east and shows what can be achieved when councils work together.“
