Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction's (DHIC) and Doosan Lentjes' new waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Olsztyn is the first waste-to-energy plant with a potent combination of capabilities that meets the demands of the industry.
FREMONT, CA: Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHIC) and its subsidiary and consortium partner Doosan Lentjes secure the contract to supply a new waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Olsztyn, Poland. It is the first WtE project between the Korean EPC company and its German engineering technology firm. The plant will be based on Doosan Lentjes' proven water-cooled counter-reciprocating grate and boiler and flue gas cleaning technology. The plat will deliver the entire one-line plant comprising combustion grate, dry Circoclean flue gas cleaning, boiler, and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). Additionally, civil works and two gas-fired peak load boilers (PLB) besides site management will be part of the supply.
The project is the first waste-to-energy plant that DHIC and Doosan Lentjes are bringing together. It proves that global EPC experience in large-scale plant construction projects and a rich heritage in modern WtE technology is a combination of capabilities that meet the industry's demands. Customers can expect an interface-optimized delivery of the project from one source. Two firms can look back on many years of experience in the execution of large plant projects worldwide. The joint entry into the WtE market represents the next step in exploiting synergy effects within the Group. According to the new BREF documents, the plant will meet all European needs concerning recycling and disposal while complying with the emission limits (Best Available Techniques Reference).

Per year, the new plant will be capable of processing up to 110,000 tons of refused derived fuel (RDF) produced by the citizens of the Olsztyn area. Covering roughly 30 percent of the district heating demand, the new plant will compensate for the heat loss that will accompany the closure of the coal-fired Michelin power plant. This will ensure a reliable and secure supply of district heating to the local citizens. Using the energy contained in the waste offers a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. Additionally, the thermal treatment of the waste makes it possible to mitigate the landfill space required.
