Edmund Nuttall, a Surrey-based civil engineering contractor, has been awarded a £41m contract to design and construct a waste plant at Donarbon Waste Management’s Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire site.


The new mechanical, biological treatment waste plant will handle 170,000 tonnes of waste a year, which Nuttall claims will reduce the amount of material sent to landfill by 75 per cent.


The plant is part of Donarbon’s PFI contract with Cambridgeshire County Council.


The contract will last 87 weeks, with completion scheduled for November 2009.
