Renewi secures 20-year off-take contract

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

Waste-to-product company, Renewi has won a 20-year contract to supply refuse derived fuel (RDF) to the new Ferrybridge Multifuel 2 (FM2) facility which is currently under construction in the UK.

Renewi is expected to supply 50,000 tonnes a year of RDF to the FM2 facility, which is being constructed by SSE in conjunction with the main EPC contractor Hitachi Zosen Inova.

The FM2 facility is due to start commissioning towards the end of 2018 and is scheduled for full operation by Summer 2019, when the contract with Renewi begins. The RDF will primarily be supplied from Renewi’s Wakefield, Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham (BDR) and Derby facilities. According to the waste-to-product specialist, the close proximity of these sites to FM2 will also provide a CO2 avoidance benefit.

In total, FM2 is anticipated to produce around 70 MW of electricity, enough to power around 170,000 homes. The facility is located next to the flagship Ferrybridge Multifuel 1 (FM1) facility.

James Priestley, managing director of Renewi’s municipal division, said: “One of our key recovery initiatives in the municipal division is to secure stable long-term outlets for RDF. It provides a long-term off-take outlet for a number of our PFI contracts which were previously exposed to market volatility. We look forward to the completion of FM2.”

Renewi has also recently secured a one-year contract to supply the AEB energy from waste facility in Amsterdam with 32,000 tonnes of RDF. The facility supplies electricity and heat to both commercial and residential properties in Amsterdam.
