Efficient waste management in Dundee, Scotland
Since the end of November 2017, we are responsible for the envorinment-friendly, efficient and sustainable management of residual waste from the city of Dundee and the adjacent Angus district. Therefore we took over the existing power plant and continue to operate it.
At the same time, we are actually constructing a new, highly efficient combined heat and power facility in the immediate vicinity of the existing plant. This new facility uses around 110,000 tonnes of residual waste per year from both local authorities to generate electricity. We are investing a total of around 135 million euros in the site.
Construction work began in spring 2018. In June 2018, together with our partners, we officially launched the project. Commissioning is planned for 2020. The existing facility will then go out of operation.
