Mott MacDonald has been appointed by Costain to design the associated marine works for a new waste-to-energy power station in East London. Mott MacDonald’s role involves the detailed design of the jetty, which will service the new power station situated at Belvedere at Halfway Reach on the Thames. The 270m long jetty will be used to transfer containerised waste from 60ft river barges to the power station and containerised ash onto the barges for disposal, while simultaneously providing a habitat for local wildlife. Construction is expected to be complete by the middle of 2009 and Mott MacDonald will continue to provide technical support during construction. The ultimate client is Riverside Resource Recovery Ltd, a subsidiary of Cory Waste Management, with VonRollInova appointed to project manage the construction of the power station and jetty.
