China: Waste Treatment Mitsubishi Awarded Contract for Waste-to-Energy Plant in Shanghai
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Environmental & Chemical Engineering has received an order to build a municipal solid waste incineration plant in Shanghai, China.
Yokohama/Japan — Once completed, the waste to energy plant will have the largest waste treatment capacity in the world of 6,000 tons per day (tpd). The engineering company will provide the necessary equipment for waste heat recovery and flue-gas treatment, and is working in a consortium with Hangzhou New Century Energy Environmental Protection Engineering, a Chinese engineering firm. Delivery is slated for completion in July 2018.
The order was received from Shanghai Laogang Solid Waste Utilization. The plant will consist of eight stoker furnace incinerators, each with a 750 tpd capacity. It will be situated in an area adjacent to Pudong International Airport in the eastern part of Shanghai. The Japanese contractor 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 — for the first time for MHIEC in China — Catalyst for NOx (nitrogen oxide) removal system. HNC will provide the waste heat boilers and flue-gas treatment system.
MHIEC has completed a number of other large-scale waste to energy plant projects. In 2000, the company delivered a plant with a treatment capacity of 4,320 tpd to Singapore, with construction now underway on an additional facility. The company also built a 3,000 tpd plant in Beijing, China.
