Veolia wins Southwark private finance deal

A mechanical-biological treatment plant is to be built in south London after Veolia was awarded a 25-year waste PFI contract with Southwark council worth £665 million.

Veolia’s plans have not changed since it was named preferred bidder for the contract last year (ENDS Report 393, p 20 ). It aims to increase Southwark’s recycling rate to 50% by 2021 and process residual waste using an 87,500 tonne capacity MBT plant.

The MBT plant will produce refused-derived fuel to be burnt at the nearby SELCHP incinerator in Lewisham, also operated by Veolia.

Pending planning approval, the firm intends to have the plant operating by 2012.
