Greater Manchester Waste PFI project involves a £640 million construction programme to provide waste services for over 973,000 households in the Greater Manchester area, recycling around 1.3 million tonnes of waste material each year.
The landmark project represents an important step for the UK on the road to meeting national and EU-wide waste and recycling targets. Once completed, it will divert more than 75 per cent of Greater Manchester’s waste away from landfill – contributing directly to the UK’s commitment to achieving 50 per cent recycling/composting and a 65 per cent diversion from landfill by 2020 in accordance with EU requirements. The project will have particular importance for the area given that Greater Manchester accounts for six per cent of national waste, making it England’s largest waste disposal authority.
As part of the new build programme, Tata Steel has provided approximately 4000m2 of double sided Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® pre-finished steel in Goosewing Grey to Euroclad for the manufacture of the cladding systems that make up the internal and external roofs and walls of the MBT facility at Reliance Street.
Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® represents the ultimate combination of performance, durability and corrosion resistance. For the MBT new build project, double sided Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® was specified – meaning the same topcoat and corrosion resistance primer was applied to the both sides of the metallic coated steel substrate. This provides the extra protection required for the demanding internal environment of the MBT facility, where the internal walls and roofs will be subjected to high levels of humidity and factors which might promote corrosion.
