HOST 2 Ltd has awarded an eight-year contract to Ecocleen’s South West franchise, AHG Facilities Management Ltd., for the provision of cleaning services at one of the largest worker campus developments in Europe.
Under the agreement, worth up to £1.5 million annually, the company will handle all internal cleaning requirements at the specially-designed accommodation that will be used by construction workers at the site of the EDF Energy Hinkley Point C nuclear power station near Bridgwater in Somerset.
The accommodation will be located on two campuses providing total of 1,496 bedrooms and recreational facilities. Ecocleen will initially clean 15 residential blocks for up to 510 workers on the Hinkley Campus, which also includes an amenity building that includes a reception area, restaurant, bars, entertainment rooms/meeting rooms and gym. The cleaning operation will be extended to the Sedgemoor Campus, once complete later this year, which will add a further 986 rooms across 29 blocks.
Hinkley Point C is the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK, expected to provide low-carbon electricity for around six million homes.
