UK – Recycling & WtE Facility
Construction of a recycling and WtE facility
The Glasgow Recycling and Renewable Energy Centre (GRREC) has commenced operations, boosting the city’s recycling rates and diverting 90% of all council waste from landfill.
The project was initially due for commissioning in 2016 but ran into delays when Interserve issued a trading update and was later served a notice of termination. Doosan Babcock was announced as the new EPC contractor to complete the facility.
The GRREC comprises of a materials recycling facility, an anaerobic digestion plant and an advanced conversion facility which produces refuse-derived fuel from post-recycled materials that remain.
Norway – Biogas Plant
Upgrading of a biogas production facility
Wärtsilä Gas Solutions is supplying a liquefaction plant to the VEAS wastewater treatment plant in Slemmestad. The plant will allow VEAS to upgrade biogas to biomethane for use as a transport fuel.
The project is scheduled to start commercial operations during 2020 and will produce biogas equivalent to approximately 6 million litres of diesel each year.
