Improving Poland’s waste management infrastructure: the country’s largest WtE plant is being built in Warsaw
Doosan Lentjes has been awarded the contract to supply grate and boiler technology for the new two-line waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Warsaw, Poland. The general contractor is the South Korean Posco E&C, while the new plant will be operated by the Warsaw waste management company MPO.
After completion, which is expected in 2024, 265,200 tonnes of municipal solid waste will be thermally treated per year in the Polish capital. Our proven air-cooled reciprocating grate technology will ensure highest operational flexibility with regard to changing waste qualities or compositions and thus guarantees long-term disposal security. The new plant will make a significant contribution to meeting European requirements for sustainable waste management.
In executing the project, we are drawing on well-founded experience in the Polish market for waste incineration: not only are we currently building the new thermal waste treatment plant in Olsztyn as the responsible general contractor. We also successfully supplied grate and boiler technology for the WtE plant in Krakow about eight years ago, which has been reliably thermally treating the residual waste of more than 750,000 inhabitants of the region ever since.
