Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co. has successfully bagged a 160 billion won ($134 million) order to build a waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Germany, expanding its foothold in the fast-growing European WtE market.

Doosan Heavy I&C announced Monday its German subsidiary Doosan Lentjes GmbH recently received the notice to proceed from MHKW Wiesbaden GmbH for the project in Wiesbaden, Germany.

MHKW Wiesbaden is a joint venture for operation of the WtE plant between a Germen waste processing company, a district heating corporation in Wiesbaden and a regional utility company in Darmstadt.

Doosan aims to complete the construction by 2024 on an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) basis. The plant will be capable of processing 600 tons of municipal waste per day to provide 22 megawatts of electricity and 40 megawatts of heat for the regional society.

New orders are on the rise in the European WtE market, driven by demand for upgrading aging plants and stricter regulations on landfills, according to Doosan Heavy I&C.

“In line with the strengthening rule for waste management in Europe, related markets are growing fast with new orders for an average 10 units of WtE facilities placed annually for the past five years. We’ll keep up efforts to target the European market, with new orders for an estimated 80 units of WtE facilities by 2025,” said Park Hong-wook, head of power service BG at Doosan Heavy I&C.

A WtE plant generates electricity by gasifying, incinerating and heating flammable household and industrial waste. It not only supplies power and heat but minimizes waste landfills to reduce environmental pollution.

Doosan Lentjes specializes in engineering, design and construction with proprietary WtE and sewage sludge solutions. The company has expanded its presence in Europe by winning a 126 billion won WtE plant deal in Olsztyn, Poland in August 2020, a 120 billion won deal in Dinslaken, Germany in October 2020, and a 67 billion won deal in Warsaw, Poland in May 2021.
