Byrne Bros. has been awarded a project for Hitachi Zosen Inova on the Newhurst Energy-from-waste facility in Leicestershire. This is a new energy recovery facility providing important sustainable waste treatment in the drive to move non-recyclable waste away from landfill, and to combat climate change.
Byrne Bros. will mainly be responsible for bulk excavation & blinding works, selected road construction, drainage and utility works, establishment of laydown areas, selected foundation excavation and all reinforced concrete (RC) works on the project. RC structures are mainly made up of flat slabs and a large concrete box structure which is the waste bunker. All buildings on the site are constructed in structural steel by others.
We will use our in-house designed slipform to construct the Waste Bunker Walls which have a perimeter of 210m. Working continuously over 24 hours, 4,100m3 of concrete will be poured and 1,600t of reinforcement will be fixed in 15 days. The erection and dismantle will also be 24h working.
Concrete will be supplied by an on-site batching plant.
Bulk excavation will be taken to stockpiles located within the footprint of the site. None is taken off site.
Working continuously over 24 hours, 4,100m3 of concrete will be poured and 1,600t of reinforcement will be fixed in 15 days.
The plant will be able to treat up to 350,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste each year.
