The Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Environmental & Chemical Engineering (MHIEC) contract is for a municipal solid waste incineration plant in Shanghai, China. The plant, which is being built for Shanghai Laogang Solid Waste Utilization, will have a record-breaking capacity of 6,000 tons per day (tpd). The plant will be situated in an area adjacent to Pudong International Airport in the eastern part of Shanghai.
MHIEC 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 (HNC), a Chinese engineering firm. Delivery is slated for completion in July 2018.
The plant will consist of eight stoker furnace incinerators, each with a 750tpd capacity. A stoker furnace is a common feature of municipal solid waste incineration plants; the waste is combusted as it moves along on a fire grate made of heat-resistant castings.
MHIEC will be responsible for the design of various aspects of the plant, from incinerators to flue-gas treatment system. HNC will provide the waste heat boilers and flue-gas treatment system.
HNC, established in 2000, is the environmental engineering arm of Hangzhou Boiler Group. MHIEC and HNC have previously collaborated on other waste-to-energy plants in China.
