Leave a Comment

A company driving forward the development of a £150m green energy power plant in Hull has selected a joint venture partnership to design, build and operate the facility, a news report in the local business media has recently revealed.

The joint venture comprises MWH Treatment, part of the giant US-based MWH Global, and leading engineering specialist Spencer Group.

The first phase of the development will be an innovative energy recovery facility that will generate 28MW of electricity by an advanced gasification process and will provide sufficient electricity to power 43,000 homes, by processing materials which would otherwise be sent to landfill, while also reducing dependency upon imported fossil fuels.

Phase two of the scheme will see the later addition of an Anaerobic Digestion plant and materials processing facilities. The development will provide a major stimulus for the local economy, creating more than 200 jobs during the construction phase, and 40 permanent positions once Energy Works is operational. 

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.”

Once its completed, a project of this size and scope will certainly require the implementation of a very solid and reliable access control and visitor management solution, and this is specifically where Access Control UK could really put its experience to very good use.
