After planning permission is achieved, construction of the waste processing facility will begin under a three-year programe, valued at around £170m.
Skanska UK, in joint venture with consultant AECOM, will carry out engineering, procurement and construction of the waste incinerator complex.
The Bradford and Calderdale Waste Partnership also includes the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council in partnership with Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council.
Skanska’s contribution to the design, build, finance and operation will be made public when the project reaches financial close later this year.
Once the new facility is completed, Waste Recycling Group, will undertake the operation of the facility for a period of 25-years.
The waste treatment facility in Bradford, known as a Resource Recovery Facility, will accept and process all of Bradford and Calderdale’s residual waste and recyclable materials such as metals, plastics, paper, card and aggregates.
The remaining waste will then be thermally treated in the energy recovery plant producing electricity that is to be fed to the National Grid.
