Energy Recovery Project Open Day Success

Daniel Kawczynski MP would like to thank local businesses for attending an open day today [15 February 2013].    Twenty local businesses went along to Shrewsbury Town Football Club to find out more about securing contracts associated with the construction of the Battlefield Energy Recovery Facility.  

The event, hosted by Veolia Environmental Services, was organised as a result of Daniel asking Veolia and main contractor Clugson, to consider using local businesses to supply goods and services.

Daniel Kawczynski says:   

“I was pleased to see such a good turnout today.  We have many dedicated local companies in Shrewsbury and Atcham that have a lot to offer.  I see this project very much as an opportunity for them to secure work over the next few years. 

Businesses that supply plant and materials can benefit from becoming involved, so too can local hotels and guest houses, as people will be moving into Shrewsbury to work on the project and will be looking for temporary accommodation.

For anyone who missed today’s session, it is not too late to express an interest. To find out more, contact my office on 01743 466477 or Veolia Environmental Services on 0203 567 2411.”

Work commenced on site in October 2012 and is due to be completed in 2015.
