Pennon Group Plc Announces Business Contract for Subsidiary Viridor Peterborough Limited and Development of Facility as Joint Venture

Friday, 1 Feb 2013 08:10am EST 

Pennon Group Plc announced that its Viridor Peterborough Limited (Viridor), has signed a Public Private Partnership contract with Peterborough City Council (PCC) to treat the council's residual waste over the next 30 years. The contract requires the development of an Energy from Waste facility at the council's existing recycling site in the Fengate industrial area. The facility will have a capacity to process up to 85,000 tones of residual waste per annum, is designed to achieve around 94% landfill diversion and will have a net electrical power generation capacity of 7.25 megawatts. Peterborough currently produces approximately 90,000 tones of waste per year, which is set to increase to 140,000 tones by 2040. Viridor submitted a Section 73 planning application in September 2012 to gain a number of minor variations to the planning permission achieved by the Peterborough City Council in May 2010. Viridor secured planning permission for the proposed changes in January 2013. The project requires capital investment of approximately GBP 75 million and the plant will be built by a joint venture between Babcock & Wilcox Volund and Interserve Construction as the engineering and procurement contractor to Viridor. Capital funding for the project will be provided by PCC via its prudential borrowing facilities. The project is expected to be earnings enhancing in its first full year of operation.
