The contract includes the building of a new energy recovery facility with a capacity of 350.000 tonnes per year. The facility is expected to produce up to 33.5 megawatts of electricity. The project will create more than 300 jobs during construction and 40 permanente jobs once the facility is operational.
Estelle Brachlianoff, Senior Executive Vice President Veolia UK and Ireland: “Our partnership with Herfordshire County Council has been strengthened following this new contract that will result in a significant investment in waste treatment infrastructure. This solution will not only maximise landfill diversion, but also represents a source of low carbon energy which will power 69.000 homes per year.”
