Doosan Škoda Power Selected For UK Waste-To-Energy Plant
By Jack Burke03 December 2020
Doosan Škoda Power has signed a contract with CNIM, a French EPC company, to supply a turnkey turbine set for the new energy from waste plant being constructed at Lostock Gralam, near Manchester in the UK.
The set includes a steam turbine generator with a capacity of 76.9 MW. The plant is scheduled to launch in late 2023. In recent years the Czech company has successfully delivered contracts in the waste and biomass incineration plant sector in Great Britain as well as in Ireland, Spain and Turkey.
“The United Kingdom is a very successful territory for us, and our turbines have a good reputation here thanks to our successful projects in recent years. Our engineers will also oversee comprehensive assembly of the equipment, testing and subsequent commissioning in this project, of course,” says Tomáš Bayer, Sales Manager at Doosan Škoda Power.
The Lostock EfW facility will manage waste that would otherwise end up in landfill and provide energy back to the UK grid, equivalent to providing power to 125 000 homes.
Doosan Škoda Power is a leading global manufacturer and supplier of power plant equipment, especially steam turbine/generator sets with outputs between 3 and 1200 MW.
