Doosan uses synergies in Olsztyn: a model for future WtE projects
Doosan Lentjes together with its consortium partner Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHIC) has been awarded the turnkey contract to supply a new waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Olsztyn, Poland. It will be the first WtE project that we carry out together with our Korean parent company and it will be a role model for future joint activities of this kind.
Once complete, the new plant, operated by Dobra Energia, will be capable of processing up to 110,000 tons of refused derived fuel (RDF) produced by the citizens of the greater Olsztyn area. Feeding this waste into thermal treatment will prevent landfilling, which is responsible for the release of climate-damaging methane gases into the atmosphere.
By meeting about 30% of the district heating needs of the region, the new plant will help to compensate for the heat loss that will accompany the closure of a local coal-fired power plant. The use of the energy contained in residual waste will thus support a secure supply of district heating to the local citizens and at the same time reducing the demand for fossil fuels.
Full compliance with all European emission limits according to the revised BREF (Best Available Techniques Reference) documents is ensured by using our highly efficient flue gas cleaning system. Harmful acid gases, hydrocarbons and heavy metals will be removed by our Circoclean® system, while the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) will remove nitrogen oxides.
