Bouygues Energies & Services has won an £82m turnkey contract to deliver a 10MW waste-to-energy gasification plant in Hertfordshire, England.

In addition to engineering and construction the deal with investment fund AssetGen Partners covers procurement of equipment and operation and maintenance for a period of 10 years

The facility in Hoddesdon, to be based on technology developed by Biomass Power Limited, will be the largest waste-to-energy gasification plant in the UK.

The plant will use refuse-derived fuel and generate 41.6MW thermal, which upon conversion through a steam turbine generator will deliver 10MWe.

Bouygues Energies & Services chief executive Jean-Christophe Perraud said: “This project will work towards achieving energy independence in the UK via the production of a local source of energy.”

Site works will begin in July with handover scheduled for 2017.
