Working on behalf of Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI), Billington Structures was the project’s steelwork contractor, fabricating and supplying 2,900 tonnes of structural steelwork. The company erected approximately half of this steel tonnage, with the other half being supplied to the project for other contractors to install along with the facility’s process equipment. This part of the steel package consisted of support structures, gantries and maintenance walkways.
The main Newhurst EfW steelwork programme included five areas – the tipping hall, waste bunker, bottom ash building, fire tank/pump room and a six-storey administrative block. The buildings are all inter-connected and enveloped to from a complex ‘wing’ profile in plan and a waveform roof.
Located just off the M1 motorway in a former quarry, the Newhurst EfW facility is a significant addition to the UK’s waste management infrastructure. It supports the Government’s drive to both, reduce reliance on landfill and to increase the UK’s ability to treat more non-recyclable waste, without relying on export to overseas facilities.
