Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Environmental & Chemical Engineering (MHIEC) has secured a contract to build a municipal solid waste incineration plant in Shanghai, China.
The contract has been awarded by Shanghai Laogang Solid Waste Utilization.
Upon completion, the waste-to-energy facility will have the largest waste treatment capacity in the world of 6,000 tonnes per day (tpd).
Located in an area next to Pudong International Airport in the eastern part of Shanghai, the plant will include eight stoker furnace incinerators, each with a 750tpd capacity.
Currently, MHIEC is working in a consortium with Hangzhou New Century Energy Environmental Protection Engineering (HNC), a Chinese engineering firm, to deliver the project.
Under the contract, MHIEC will be responsible for the design of various aspects of the plant, from incinerators to flue-gas treatment system. It will also supply stokers, hydraulic units, ash extractor and catalyst for NOx (nitrogen oxide) removal system, while the waste heat boilers and flue-gas treatment system will be supplied by HNC.
The project is scheduled to be completed in July 2018.
