SES scoops Manchester waste sub-contract

Building services firm SES has won the £16 million mechanical and electrical deal on the Greater Manchester household waste contract.

SES will install M&E systems at household waste recycling plants as part of the largest PFI deal of its kind in Europe.

Main contractor Costain will provide five mechanical biological treatment plants, four in-vessel composting plants, six transfer loading stations, two green waste facilities, a materials recovery facility, and works on 24 household waste recycling centres.

SES will be responsible for installing external lighting, sprinkler systems, water mains and CCTV systems. Health and safety is a priority for the firm.

SES chief executive Mark Perkins said: “Working on any waste project brings its own health, safety and security issues, both for our operatives onsite and, ultimately, the personnel working on these sites and the general public using them.

“I’m encouraged by the proactive nature and the joined up approach adopted by the client, principal contractor and SES safety teams to ensure that safety and security is paramount at all times while onsite and going forward.”
