ABB Lands Waste-to-Energy Supplier Contract
Hitachi Zosen Inova, a Swiss-based waste-to-energy engineering, procurement and construction contractor, awarded the contract. The ABB integrated control system, pictured above, that will be used in the plants is based on its Symphony Plus platform, which is designed to allow for rapid adjustment of combustion conditions for safe and efficient operations.
The Severnside Energy Recovery Centre in England will treat up to 400,000 metric tons of municipal solid waste annually and will have an installed electrical capacity of 37 megawatts—enough to power 50,000 UK homes. The UK government is building the facility as part of larger goal to keep waste out of landfills.
The plant in Poznan, Poland has a capacity of 18 MW derived from 210,000 metric tons of waste, ABB says. The Poznan plant is part of an effort by Polish cities to comply with new national and European environmental standards on waste disposal.
Both plants are expected to be operational by 2016.
