Doosan Lentjes and ARIKON have been awarded the contract for the turnkey delivery of the new waste-to-energy plant in Wiesbaden, Germany.
The new power plant will comprise one process line, including grate, boiler, water-steam cycle and dry flue gas cleaning.
After completion, the facility will thermally treat about 200,000 tonnes of municipal and commercial waste from the greater Wiesbaden area per year.
Doosan Lentjes, a specialist in environmental technology, will be responsible as general contractor for the turnkey planning, delivery, assembly, and commissioning of the entire plant.
ARIKON will be responsible for the civil works. The commissioning of the new plant is expected to start early 2024.
The owner and operator will be MHKW Wiesbaden.
"We are pleased to be able to support our client in establishing safe and future-proof disposal capacities," said Gerhard Lohe, director of Tthermal waste treatment at Doosan Lentjes. "MHKW Wiesbaden GmbH benefits from our proven technologies, which enable reliable plant operation with high availability. At the same time, the processes can be flexibly adapted to changing fuel properties. Thus, even possible changes in the composition of the waste will not prevent the plant from reliably operating over its lifetime."
In the overall technological process, the plant technology applied will produce electricity and district heating from the energy contained in the waste. The use of this energy, which is largely of biogenic origin, represents a sustainable alternative to burning fossil fuels.
Wiesbaden will be the first project of this kind that Doosan Lentjes and ARIKON deliver together.
