Contractor appointed for Aberdeen energy-from-waste plant

The preferred bidder for a £150m energy from waste plant in Aberdeen has been named, clearing the way for construction to begin later in the year should the final go-ahead be given next month.

The Ness Energy Project, a joint initiative led by Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray Council’s, will be delivered by a consortium led by Acciona, handling non-recyclable waste from across each local authority when it opens in 2022.

Located in the East Tullos area of the city the plant has been necessitated by stricter rules on landfill waste due to come into effect from 2021, a deadline which has also precipitated a similar facility in Inverness.

In a statement Garry Stewart Design Associates wrote: “Overall the facility offers a confident and positive architectural statement which celebrates its future energy generation role in the area.”

Situated close to a residential area the design employs polycarbonate translucent cladding and a colorful plinth to address visual impact concerns.

A translucent skin will see the plant 'glow' by night
