Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) was awarded an approximately $65 million contract to provide engineering services and advanced technology for the Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant (LSEP), a waste-to-energy plant located at Lostock Gralam near Manchester, UK.

B&W will provide its GMAB flue gas treatment technologies, SPIG air-cooled condensers, Diamond Power boiler cleaning equipment and engineering in both B&W’s Denmark and U.S. offices.

The site of the Lostock plant was previously home to a since decommissioned coal-fired power plant.

It will utilize residual waste to generate 60+ MW of energy for residents and businesses. The plant is expected to be one of the largest operational waste-to-energy plants in the UK, processing around 600,000 metric tons of waste per year.

The Lostock waste-to-energy plant is scheduled to begin commercial operation in late-2025.
