The plant can process 120,000 tonnes waste per year.
Keppel’s infrastructure arm in Belgium, Keppel Seghers, has completed its Bialystok waste-to-energy (WTE) combined heat and power project in Poland.
According to a statement by Keppel, the project was delivered on 31 December 2015 on schedule and on budget.
Keppel added that Keppel Seghers was part of a consortium, including Budimex S.A and Cespa Compania Espanola de Servicios Publicos Auxiliares S.A that won the Engineering,
Procurement and Construction contract awarded by Bialystok's municipal solid waste management company LECH in 2012.
“Keppel Seghers executed 49.6% (by value) of the project work scope and supplied its proprietary waste-to-energy technology, including its air-cooled grate and vertical boiler, which are designed to achieve efficient energy recovery and operational reliability, to the facility,” the statement said.
The statement said the plant is among the first WTE plants in Poland to achieve commercial operation, and exports approximately 7.6 MW of electricity to the grid during summer, and supplies 17.5 MW of thermal energy to Bialystok’s district heating and exports 6.1 MW of electricity to the grid during winter.
