Construction group wins £7.5m processing facility contract on former power station

Clugston Construction has secured a £7.5m contract to provide civils work for a new bottom ash processing facility at the Ferrybridge Power Station site in Knottingley, West Yorkshire.

The new facility will process the bottom ash generated by two adjacent Energy from Waste plants, once it is completed in summer 2019.

The contract was awarded to Clugston by Ballast Phoenix, which specialises in capturing and reusing the non-hazardous material left over from Energy from Waste plants. .

Using Ballast Phoenix’s process, the metals will be extracted from the bottom ash and supplied to metal companies for reuse, whilst the remaining material will be graded into sustainable sources of aggregates for the construction industry.

The project involves the construction of a 1,700m2 portal frame process and storage building, including a two-storey office area, as well as external hardstanding and logistics infrastructure.
