Covanta granted extension for construction of Poolbeg incinerator

Dublin City Council has extended the contract for construction of the controversial Poolbeg incinerator until the end of August.

The council said the extension is to allow a number of regulatory issues to be finalised and to allow the company Covanta to have funding in place.

The company will have to be in a position to commit to work resuming before November 5.

A number of extensions have already been granted to Covanta for the 600,000 tonne facility, which is estimated will cost €350m.
