Company secures £6 million contract to design and construct waste-processing plant in Hull
KELTBRAY – specialists in construction, demolition, decommissioning and remediation services – have won a £6 million contract to design and build a new waste-processing facility on a 1.1-hectare brownfield site in Hull, East Yorkshire.
The company is delivering the project for Geminor, a European resource management firm that specializes in the supply of waste products to materials recycling and energy recovery. Upon completion, the materials recovery facility (MRF), with an output of around 150,000 tonnes per year, will produce and supply refuse derived fuel (RDF) to the nearby Energy Works Hull energy recovery plant and to other waste-to-energy incinerators in the UK and abroad.
The new state-of-the-art MRF will have the capability to maximize the recovery of high-value recyclable materials within the household, construction, and industrial sectors.
Keltbray pre-construction director Richard Smith said: ‘This has been a target project for us, and we are delighted to be part of the delivery team. Upon completion, this site will contribute to increased energy creation for the local community, whilst further strengthening our position in the region.’
James Maiden, country manager for Geminor UK, added: ‘We are delighted to start the construction of our new and modern processing facility in Hull and to create a low carbon fuel from Hull City Council’s waste.’
