THE construction firms that built the incinerator have admitted responsibility for an accident in which a builder suffered burns to his face, neck and shoulders from a jet of scalding steam.

Igor Fernandes suffered the injuries while working near pipes that were being tested at the incinerator in December 2010.

Yesterday, in the Royal Court, the two companies responsible for the £110m incinerator at La Collette – Constructions Industrielles de la Mediterranee SA and Spie Battignolles Camerons Limited – appeared in the Royal Court over the 2010 accident.

Both companies admitted a single charge under the Health and Safety Law in relation to the accident.
