Housed in a former gas storage site on the East Tullos Industrial Estate, the NESS Energy Project is an ‘energy from waste’ plant being constructed in Aberdeen (Scotland), with the capacity to treat up to 150,000 tonnes of waste per year.
Costing more than £150 million to develop, the plant will generate electricity for the National Grid and has the potential to heat the households in the Torry district of Aberdeen through a heating network.
The project is being undertaken by ACCONIA, on behalf of Aberdeen City, Moray and Aberdeenshire Councils, who awarded the piling and foundations contract to Bauer Technologies, a subsidiary of the BAUER Group.
Specifically, Bauer Technologies was required to install a hard/hard secant wall comprising of 172no. 1060/1180mm diameter piles to depths of 30m, which will create the waste reception bunker.
