The new energy-from-waste plant, which began construction in October 2016, will serve the cities of Edinburgh and Midlothian, Scotland.
Madrid, Spain-based FCC Group announced that its Recycling and Energy Recovery Centre (RERC) of Millerhill, developed by FCC Environment, is now in full operation ahead of schedule. FCC Environment Limited is a waste management company headquartered in Northampton, U.K., and a subsidiary of FCC Group.
The new energy-from-waste plant, which will serve the cities of Edinburgh and Midlothian, Scotland, commenced construction in October 2016 and has been receiving residual waste since October 2018 for commissioning purposes. Another significant milestone was achieved in December 2018 with the generation of energy from the plant’s 13-megawatt turbine.
The Millerhill RERC was developed jointly by the Edinburgh and Midlothian Councils, in partnership with FCC Environment, which signed a 25-year contract to deliver and operate the £142 million plant in October 2016.
