Enabling works deal for GDL on Dundee energy scheme

Ground Developments (GDL) has said that has been awarded an enabling works package by main contractor Standardkessel Baumgarte for the new Baldovie Energy from Waste Combined Heat and Power Facility in Dundee.

Under the deal, GDL will undertake soil stabilisation to form the piling mat instead of the planned excavation and replacement with imported aggregate.

“We’ve brought about cost and environmental benefits for our client through re-engineering the material that was originally intended for disposal off-site and replacement with imported aggregates,” said GDL managing director Kevin Mackenzie. “Instead we have used our soil stabilisation techniques to enable the follow-on piling works.”

Once completed, the new facility will generate electricity as well as steam for the local industry.

GDL started work on site last month and the work is expected to take eight weeks to complete.

The facility is expected to be operational by 2020.
