Fichtner has been involved in the project since the late 1990’s when Mercia won the Hereford and Worcestershire PFI Contract. After a failed development on a site near Kidderminster, the Hartlebury site was chosen as an alternative. Nearly 20 years since the contract commenced, Fichtner are delighted to now be the Owner’s Engineer for the construction of the plant.
