Besides the feed hopper, boiler, dry bottom ash extractor and electrostatic precipitator, the scope of supply also includes HZI’s proprietary combustion technology.
Construction is scheduled to start in early Summer 2020. The existing plant will be dismantled once the new installation goes into operation. The two newly constructed combustion lines will be used to process 221,000 metric tons of source-separated municipal and commercial waste a year to generate up to 53.7 MW of thermal energy that will be fed into the respective grid as electricity or district heat.
The contract to supply the combustion system of the new plant marks an important continuation of a decades-long collaboration between HZI and the client, which started in 1976 with the installation of the first plant in Zuchwil, which was replaced and extended with HZI technology in the 1990-ies.
