A joint venture between Bam subsidiary Wayss & Freytag and German engineer Matthäi is to build an extension to the Rothensee waste-to-energy plant in Magdeburg.
The team will extend the third block for thermal waste utilisation at the plant for Müllheizkraftwerk at a cost of €30m.
At present the plant is capable of converting household waste from 650,000 homes into electricity and heating.
Construction on the project is due to begin this month and be completed by the spring of 2024. Work on the original Rothensee plant began in 2002, and was also carried out by Wayss & Freytag.
