TEKLA AWARDS 2022 SUCCESS! Billington Structures

We are so proud that Newhurst EfW Facility is the winner of the Industrial Projects UK Tekla Award 2022!

Judges comments included; “This is a fantastic project with an important ethos in sustainability, resulting in non-recyclable waste being removed from landfill while also combating climate change. Billington Structures built incredibly complex connection details within a very challenging construction context. They have also created an interesting build sequence.”

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.

The facility will use proven technology to provide up to 350,000 tonnes of annual treatment capacity for non-recyclable waste and will generate up to 42 megawatts of electricity, enough to power around 80,000 homes. The Newhurst EfW facility will provide important sustainable waste treatment capacity in the drive to move non-recyclable waste away from landfill and combat climate change.

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.

Congratulations to all the team involved in the project!
