SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT - SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT And Its Partners Selected As Preferred Bidder For 30-years €1.4 Billion Resource Recovery Contract With Merseyside Recycling And Waste Authority

PARIS, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

SITA SEMBCORP UK, a consortium led by SITA UK, a subsidiary of SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT, has been selected as preferred bidder for a resource recovery contract worth €1.4 billion [1] over 30 years with the Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority. The other consortium members are Sembcorp Utilities UK and I-Environment, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Itochu Corporation.

The contract is to manage over 430,000 tonnes of residual household waste each year from Merseyside and Halton.  It includes the design, build, finance and operation of two key facilities which both have planning permission in place: a rail loading waste transfer station in Merseyside and a new purpose-built energy-from-waste facility in Teesside. Total capital investment for the two facilities will be around €295 million. Both key facilities are expected to be operational by 2016.  In total, 75 permanent new jobs will be created by the contract with hundreds more temporary jobs during the construction of the two new facilities.

The rail loading waste transfer station will be developed at an existing rail-linked warehouse in Knowsley Industrial Estate.  From here, waste will be transported by rail to the new 450,000 tonnes per year energy-from-waste facility, which will be developed on a rail linked site at Wilton International - a 2,000 acre industrial estate managed by Sembcorp Utilities UK near Redcar on Teesside.  

The new energy-from-waste facility will generate electricity for the equivalent of 63,000 homes and has the potential to provide steam directly to adjacent business customers, which would further improve its efficiency.  In total, over 90 per cent of the contract waste managed by the SITA Sembcorp UK consortium will be diverted from landfill and used to produce energy.
