Keppel bags $111.11m contract for Australia's first waste-to-energy plant

The facility will be able to reduce 90% of the waste that goes to landfills.

Keppel clinched a contract to provide waste-to-energy (WTE) technology and services worth over $111.11m (EUR70m) for Australia's first WTE plant, an announcement revealed.

Through Keppel Seghers, the firm will provide to the Acciona consortium which is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor of the project, the core equipment, design, and technical services for the plant's furnace, boiler and flue gas treatment.

"Keppel is well-positioned to capture opportunities arising from the drive for sustainable development and deliver world-class solutions to meet the demand for clean, liveable environments,” Keppel Infrastructure CEO Dr. Ong Tiong Guan said.

Located in Kwinana, the WTE plant can process up to 400,000 tonnes a year of waste and export an estimated 36MW of green electricity to the grid. It will tap on Keppel Seghers' air-cooled grate and vertical boiler, which are designed to achieve efficient energy recovery and operational reliability.

When completed in 2021, the facility can effectively reduce the volume of waste that goes to landfills by over 90%.
