Future proofing Harlingen with our unique WtE solution
Doosan Lentjes successfully delivered, installed and commissioned key grate, boiler, and balance-of-plant technology for a new Waste to Energy (WtE) plant in Harlingen, The Netherlands. The plant is owned and operated by REC BV, a subsidiary of Afvalsturing friesland NV.
We have helped to guarantee the plant’s longevity by delivering a unique combustion unit with an additionally integrated gas-fired superheater, obtaining live steam parameters while minimising corrosion risks. Incorporating water-cooled grate bars also makes Harlingen highly flexible to future changes in waste quality.
The plant’s long life is supported by enhanced efficiency. Using the environmentally sound energy recovered from pre-treated waste in a counter-pressure steam turbine, Harlingen can produce both electrical power and process steam.
High steam parameters together with combined Heat and Power technology drive the highest efficiency and ensure that the plant fully meets EU and Dutch environmental goals.
The project involved a close cooperation between REC BV, Doosan Lentjes and other contractors to successfully deliver the new plant in a complex environment.
