Bouygues bags N Ireland bio job

Bouygues Energies & Services, a subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, has been awarded by the Full Circle Generation investment fund a €202m contract to build a 15MWe waste-to-energy gasification plant in Northern Ireland.

Bouygues will be responsible for engineering, procurement and construction of the Belfast facility and will also perform operations and maintenance for 17 years.

The gasification plant will have capacity of 60MWt, which, when converted by two steam turbines, will generate the 15MWe. A manufacturing plant owned by Bombardier Aerospace will be the principal beneficiary.

Construction is scheduled to start in January, with handover set for late 2017. It will generate jobs for 200 people at peak periods.

The waste-to-energy facility will contribute to treating more than 150,000 tonnes of feedstock derived from local commercial and industrial waste and will enable Northern Ireland to save 50,000 tonnes of carbon per year.

The Full Circle Generation fund consists of the developer RiverRidge Energy and a consortium of investors made up of Green Investment Bank, Equitix and P3P Partners.
