Client: JG Pears Ltd
Location: Newark, Nottinghamshire
Project Outline: The project entailed a new build 42 megawatt waste to energy Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant installation to generate electricity and steam for a nearby animal rendering facility as well as exporting any excess electrical power to the National Grid.
Services: Construction Manager, Civil Engineering Project Manager, Cost Manager
Roles and Achievements: The works involved piled foundations on a site with challenging ground conditions including a high water table. Summers-Inman completed the project without disruption to an adjacent factory with shared access, infrastructure and services. New steel framed buildings were constructed with concrete upper floors and insulated panel roofing and sheeting systems complete with building services including new fire water ring main. The facility replaces over 90 per cent of the fossil fuels currently used in the rendering process with meat and bone meal (MBM), a sustainable alternative that has a calorific value of the same magnitude as coal, saving over 150,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.
