German waste to energy technology manufacturer, Doosan Lentjes, a part of Doosan Power Systems, is to deliver key boiler technologies for a new waste to energy facility being built in Krakow, Poland. Doosan said that the plant will be based on its air-cooled reciprocating grate and boiler technology. As a key subcontractor to POSCO Engineering & Construction of South Korea, Doosan Lentjes is to supply a complete boiler system for the plant, which will consist of two lines capable of processing up to 220,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste per year. The company added that the new plant is currently the largest waste to energy plant under construction in Poland. According to Doosan the contract includes engineering, procurement and delivery of equipment as well as services for construction and commissioning. The plant, scheduled for completion by the end of 2015, will combine Doosan Lentjes’ reciprocating grate and steam generator technologies to produce electricity and district heat. Doosan added that it has installed similar technologies at several waste to energy plants worldwide, most recently at plants in Frankfurt, Germany and Harlingen, Netherlands. Once complete the plant is expected to generate around 8 MW of electricity and some 35 MW of heat.
