Team picked for Connecticut waste plant

A team made up of Sacyr and Manhattan Construction Group has been named preferred bidder for a waste treatment plant in Connecticut.

The work involves the design, financing, construction and operation of the new plant in Hartford, as well as the update of the current incinerator to adapt it to the highest international efficiency standards.

The estimated investment stands at US$226m for the duration of the contract, and it is expected to generate an overall total of about US$3.5bn.

The completed facility will manage a third of all waste in the state of Connecticut. It will treat municipal solid waste, packaging, paper and cardboard and glass and will have a capacity of up to 900,000t a year.

The new facilities will begin to operate in January 2019 and will allow the recovery of more than 40% of municipal solid waste (MSW) through anaerobic digestion recycling and composting technologies. In addition, waste that is currently recovered thermally to obtain electricity and fuel, among other improvements, will be cut in half.

The selected process technology consists of a mechanical - biological treatment of the waste.

The project, managed by the Department of Energy & Environmental Protection of Connecticut (CT-DEEP), includes the design, financing, construction, remodeling and operation for 30 years, with two possible five-year extensions of the waste treatment centers located in the town of Hartford and the four associated transfer stations in Watertown, Torrington, Essex and Ellington.

Spanish company Sacyr’s strategic program for 2015-2020 included entering the US market as one of the objectives in the international expansion of the group.
