Shropshire’s new £60 million incinerator is beginning to take shape, with the centre looking almost like the finished article.
Waste contractor Veolia and contractors Clugston are building the burner at the Battlefield Enterprise Park on the outskirts of Shrewsbury.
Workmen have spent the last few months assembling steelwork for a waste bunker, completing construction of a turbine hall and starting to put in boiler panels. The whole project is due to be finished by 2015.
Work began in October last year and has provided about 200 jobs during the construction phase.
The facility will be dealing with commercial and domestic waste from the Shropshire area ,and will process 95,000 tonnes of rubbish per year.
Once in operation, the plant will generate enough energy to power 10,000 homes.
The three-year construction project aimed to employ as many local firms and workers as possible.Subscribe to our Newsletter
