Energy Works, Hull

Energy Works Power Plant Project, Hull

Energy Works will be the first facility of its kind in the UK, using a combination of innovative renewable energy technologies to achieve a highly efficient mix of recycling and energy conversion processes. The project has been awarded a grant of almost £20 million from the European Regional Development Fund, in recognition of the role it can play in encouraging further innovation in this field.

The facility will produce sufficient electricity to power 43,000 homes; created over 450 jobs during construction and over 30 jobs during the operational phase; regenerate a brownfield site; enable other businesses to reduce their carbon footprint; and provide cheap power and heating to local companies.

We were retained by the main contractor, Black & Veatch, to carry out formwork and groundworks. During the contract we were commended for our approach to Health and Safety.
