Levenseat, Lanarkshire, Scotland (UK), 27 March 2015

Leading global engineering and construction company, M+W Group, has been
appointed as
main contractor for the delivery of a £111 (€150) million state-of-the art
energy from waste (EfW) facility in Lanarkshire, Scotland.

Following an extensive design and development phase, M+W Group will engineer,
procure and construct (EPC) a new 12.5 MWe thermal treatment plant alongside
a new Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) on the site at Levenseat in
Lanarkshire. M+W Group was selected as the main contractor based on the
company's in-house engineering expertise, understanding of the treatment
process as well as its demonstrable track record of safely delivering major
complex facilities to the highest international standards.

In addition to being the first major new waste treatment and management
facility in Levenseat, the new infrastructure will be the first of its kind
in the UK, combining fluidised bed gasification technology and Refuse Derived
Fuel (RDF) processed by the MRF. Fluidised bed gasification technology
provides a more efficient syngas from biomass than traditional incineration
techniques.

Over the lifetime of the new facility, it is estimated that the Levenseat
facility will recycle over a million tonnes of materials including plastics,
metals, paper and aggregates. This will save around 1.3 million tonnes of CO2
emissions and help divert over 1.4 million tonnes of waste that would
otherwise go to landfill. Exporting over 30Gwh of heat and 750GWh of
electricity every year, it will produce enough electricity to supply the
equivalent of around 18,000 homes.

Specialising in advanced thermal waste treatment solutions, M+W Group has
proven expertise in the design, process engineering and construction of major
complex projects, using project finance and other funding mechanisms. When
the new facilities at Levenseat, due for completion in 2017 come on stream,
they will play a key role in helping Scotland achieve its waste and recycling
targets. With a stated aim of being a "Zero Waste Society", the Scottish
Government has set a target for 70% of all waste to be recycled with a
maximum of 5% of household waste going to Landfill by 2025. The new £111
million energy and recycling plant will be important part of enabling those
targets to be met.

Peter Greenhalgh, M+W Group Joint CEO EMEA stated: "Energy is a core sector
for M+W Group. We have now secured major programmes of work in waste to
energy and nuclear in the UK based on our ability to demonstrate the value of
applying global engineering expertise to enable performance certainty in
these industry sectors We are looking forward to successfully delivering the
new infrastructure that will enable Levenseat to play a strategically
important role in helping Scotland achieve its long term, low-carbon future".
