Stella South Power Station

Customer:St Paul’s Developments

Value: £4.7 million

VHE carried out the remediation and reclamation works of the 19 hectare site of the former Stella South Power Station, near Gateshead.

These comprised the break-out and processing of the complex substructures on the site along with the remediation of 15,000 cubic metres of hydrocarbon contaminated materials, of which 7,000 cubic metres were treated by bioremediation utilising the services of our in-house technical division VHE Technology.

The bulk earthworks involved a cut and fill operation of approximately 350,000 cubic metres to achieve the final ground levels, together with clean capping over the majority of the site. This included more than 160,000 tonnes of concrete, building rubble and reinforcement either in-situ or stockpiled by the demolition contractor together with 55,000 cubic metres of unstable river valley silts and sands, 3,500 tonnes of mangled reinforcement still encased in concrete and 7,000 cubic metres of soil heavily contaminated with oil, petrol and diesel.
