Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. has awarded our French partner CNIM the contract to build the turnkey Deeside plant, which will have the capacity to combust approx. 200,000 tons of waste per year.
The facility will be jointly built by CNIM and the British construction company Clugston in Deeside Industrial Park, and is expected to come online at the beginning of 2019. The waste-to-energy (WTE) plant will be part of the Parc Adfer disposal and recycling centre, run by an association of 5 counties in North Wales.
The electricity output is sufficient to provide more than 30,000 households with renewable energy. As the plant will be designed for cogeneration, it will also provide heat for local industrial and commercial businesses as well as private households.
For Deeside, MARTIN will supply a 4-run reverse-acting grate with a width of 8.980 m. The gross heat release will be 68.4 MW with a throughput of up to 29.0 t/h.
