Interserve and Babcock & Wilcox have announced they have handed over the Dunbar renewable energy plant project to Viridor Enviroscot
The Dunbar Energy Recovery Facility, a municipal waste-to-energy plant, in East Lothian, Scotland can process up to 38 tons of municipal waste per hour, delivering power to thousands of homes and businesses. It will contribute towards the Scottish Government’s target of sending zero biodegradable municipal waste to landfill by 2021.
This project is one of four European renewable energy projects Babcock & Wilcox previously announced it expects to turn over to customers in the first and second quarters of 2019. The Dunbar project was referred to as the “sixth project” in B&W’s previous public disclosures about its European Renewable projects.
Dougie Sutherland, executive director at Interserve, said: “We are pleased to have completed the Dunbar project and handed it over to our customer Viridor Enviroscot Ltd. This is an important milestone in the transformation of Interserve.”
B&W chief executive officer Kenneth Young commented: “B&W’s Vølund’s advanced technology is proven and reliable for waste-to-energy customers worldwide and we’re proud to have executed this important project for Viridor.
“The Dunbar facility, which features B&W Vølund’s state-of-the-art DynaGrate® fuel combustion system, will be able to process up to 38 tons of municipal waste per hour, deliver power to thousands of local homes and businesses, and help the Scottish government meet its target of landfilling zero biodegradable municipal waste by 2021.”
