Contractor will construct two waste-to-energy plants for Anglican Water

Galliford Try has been awarded two contracts worth £35m to build waste-to-energy plants for Anglian Water.

The contractor will partner with Imtech Process on the anaerobic digestion plants in Basildon and Ipswich.

The plants will generate energy from biogas as bi-products of the sludge treatment process and also produce fertilisers for recycling to land.

Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive of Galliford Try, said: “We are delighted to secure this additional business from an existing framework client.

“It builds on our track record in delivering both clean and waste water infrastructure projects as a leading infrastructure contractor to the water industry.”
