A contract to build and operate a waste to energy plant in the Polish City of Gdansk, has been awarded to EEW Energy from Waste by the City’s publicly owned waste management company, ZAKŁAD UTYLIZACYJNY Sp. z o.o. (ZUT).
Bernard M. Kemper, CEO of Chinese owned German firm, EEW, described the successful participation in the tender process as a milestone for its project work in Poland and a win for both sides.
“For us, the award of this contract represents our entry into the Polish market,” he said.
Kemper added that by partnering with EEW, ZUT will benefit not only from nearly 50 years of experience in waste to energy, as well as synergy effects with the 18 plants in the EEW Group.
The annual thermal treatment capacity at the Gdansk plant, which will operate under the name Port Czystej Energii, will be around 160,000 tonnes of waste. The waste feedstock is expected to have a calorific value of approximately 11 megajoules per kilogram.
Following construction of the plant, EEW Polska will operate the single-line grate firing system on behalf of the publicly owned waste management company ZUT for 25 years.
As well as producing electricity, the combined heat and power (CHP) plant will supply energy to the district heating customer GPEC, which operates the city of Gdansk’s district heating network.
The company said that the facility will feature state-of-the-art flue gas cleaning equipment to capture the pollutants contained in waste and removes them permanently from the biosphere.
