News from MARTIN - Orders for grates in WtE plants in Serbia and Italy
Electricity and district heat from household waste for the capital’s metropolitan area
Following the granting of the permit, on 04/10/2019 our French partner CNIM received the Notice to Proceed for the construction of a turnkey thermal waste treatment line in Vinča, located south-east of Belgrade. The waste-to-energy plant is part of a public-private partnership between the city of Belgrade, the French waste disposal company SUEZ and the Japanese trading company ITOCHU.
After start-up, which is scheduled for 2022, SUEZ will operate the plant for 25 years and combust approx. 340,000 t of household and commercial waste per year. A thermal output of 103 MW will be used to generate 25 MW of electricity and 56 MW of district heat. At the same time, the plant will ease the burden on the neighbouring landfill site, currently one of the 50 largest in the world.
MARTIN will supply a 6-run reverse-acting grate Vario. With a total width of 15.800 m this will be the widest MARTIN reverse-acting grate built to date, and achieve a throughput rate of nearly 50 t/h. The MICC system will be used for combustion control.
Order for new combustion line at Parona plant
Lomellina Energia S.r.l., the operator of the Parona waste-to-energy plant in the Lombardy province, has awarded a consortium involving MARTIN the contract to build a new turnkey combustion line for the thermal treatment of residual household and commercial waste. On behalf of its Italian consortium partners, MARTIN will supply the grate-based combustion system, including the combustion air system. As of 2022, the new line will thermally treat 200,000 t/a of residual waste and will use the heat released to generate electricity to be fed to the grid.
For the new line, MARTIN will supply and start-up a reverse-acting grate Vario with 5 runs, which corresponds to a total width of 13.14 m. The gross heat release will be up to 110 MW with a throughput of up to 36.3 t/h.
Following start-up of the new line, one of the two older lines of the plant will be taken out of service.
