Energy Works

M+W Group Contact

M+W Group is the main Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor for the new, advanced energy from waste facility to be built in Hull. M+W Group is responsible for the design and build of the new facility which will incorporate the latest fluidised bed gasification technology.

Once completed, the plant will have the capacity to handle approximately 300,000 tonnes of Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) per annum, generating up to 28MW of electricity. As well as reducing the need to landfill locally and to use fossil fuels for energy to meet local demand, the new facility will produce enough energy from treating waste to power the equivalent of 43,000 homes in the community each year.

Located in the industrial heart of Hull, the facility will see the redevelopment of 2 adjacent brownfield sites covering an area of 12 acres. To reduce the need for vehicular transportation and impact of any congestion in the area during the construction and operation of the facility, a special high-line conveyor and access route will be created to connect the two sites.

Working on the project alongside M+W Group are 2 main sub-contractors; Outotec, an international specialist in advanced gasification technology; and Spencer Group, the Hull-based engineering and construction business leading the civil engineering works for the development.

The project is backed by a private-equity consortium which includes the Foresight Group supported by a £20 million grant from the European Regional Development Fund.

A key feature of the new development is the promotion of a better understanding of new waste management techniques as well as the importance of recycling, sustainable energy and using alternative fuels. With this in mind, the new facility incorporates an educational “Energy Academy”, providing modern research and development facilities for Hull University.
