New waste-to-energy plant
2 October 2017 - Projects update and handover - United Kingdom
This summer, with the arrival of the first waste on treatment line No. 2, the VINCI Environnement (Entrepose/VINCI Construction) teams passed a key milestone on the project to build and commission the new waste-to-energy power plant in North Yorkshire.
After a steam purge (cleaning of the boiler tubes) on Lines 1 and 2, the turbine tests were carried out in mid-September 2017. Handover of the facility is scheduled for the end of the year. This waste-to-energy plant will process 320,000 t of residual waste per year: after sorting, it will be transformed into electricity, supplying 40,000 nearby homes.
