A new energy-from-waste centre in Avonmouth, Bristol has offered its £8.2 million contract for the delivery of all mechanical and electrical (M&E) works to SES Engineering Services (SES) and Clugston Construction.
The firms will support the development of Viridor’s new £252 million facility by completing a series of works, including containment, lighting, small power, access control, ICT, CCTV, domestic water services, sanitary ware, above ground drainage, cooling, and mechanical ventilation.
“We have a long history of delivering complex projects like this, and increasing our profile in the energy and waste sectors is an important growth driver for our business. Our experience gained on similar projects like Margam and Drax Power Station was a key decision maker for our appointment, and we look forward to applying this expertise to the Avonmouth project to ensure it is delivered safely and within its tight timescale,” said Steve Tovey, SES Business Director, Midlands and South West.
The Avonmouth Resource Recovery Centre will process waste destined for landfill, to create energy for the national grid. Once completed, the site is expected to generate 32MWe of energy – enough to power 44,000 homes – and save 320,000 tonnes of waste from entering landfill. The bottom ash residue will also be reused for construction aggregate.SES is expected to start on site in January 2019 with hot commissioning scheduled to commence in October 2019, and full completion due in February 2020.
Acquired by the Wates Group in 2015, SES Engineering Services (SES) is the UK’s pre-eminent design-led Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) provider. SES specialises in the design and installation of building services and infrastructure solutions covering all aspects of M&E.
