A joint venture of MWH Treatment and the Spencer Group have secured preferred bidder status for the Energy Works development in Hull
Client Energy Works (Hull) is a subsidiary of the Spencer Group.
The firm confirmed construction of the first phase of the development will begin early in 2015 with completion scheduled by March 2017.
The first phase will be an energy recovery facility that will generate 28MW of electricity to power 43,000 homes using materials which would otherwise be sent to landfill.
Phase two will see the later addition of an Anaerobic Digestion plant and materials processing facilities.
The development will create more than 200 jobs during the construction phase.
Energy Works Project Director Phil Morland said: “We are pleased to announce the joint venture of MWH Treatment and Spencer Group as our preferred bidder.
“The two companies are a good fit, with complementary capabilities, and offer the ideal partnership to deliver this ground-breaking project.
“There is a clear synergy between the partners – MWH brings a wealth of experience in energy recovery projects and a strong thermal process capability, while Spencer has vast experience in executing complex multi-disciplinary energy projects and a track record of delivering large civil, electrical and bulk handling works. ”
Spencer Group Chief Executive Frank Millar said: “As a company founded and based in Hull, our involvement will ensure local employment will be a major priority.
“This project will create and underpin jobs within our business and open up much-needed employment opportunities within the local community.”
