The scope of work includes design, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, and testing of the facility, Boiler (fuel - Refused Derived Fuel), 19 MWe steam turbine generator and condenser, pollution control equipment, water treatment plant, associated balance of plant and subsequent O&M. Construction will start in Q3FY22 and will take over three years to commission.
The facility will process 23.2 tonnes of non-recyclable solid municipal waste per hour, diverting over 185,600 tonnes of waste each year. It will generate around 19.6 MW of energy, enough to power over 30,000 homes, and will provide heat that can be used by nearby businesses.
Amit Jain, Global CEO, Sterling & Wilson Solar Group informed that this is an important project for the region, in terms of sustainability and renewable power generation. With over two billion tonnes of municipal waste produced globally each year, the treatment of non-recyclable trash that otherwise emits methane from landfills will help reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
