Outotec to provide waste-to-energy plant to Kingston Upon Hull, the UK
Outotec has agreed with M+W Group, the EPC contractor for Energy Works of Hull, on the design and delivery of a waste-to-energy plant to Kingston Upon Hull in the United Kingdom. The order value is approximately EUR 35 million which has been booked in Outotec's 2015 fourth quarter order intake.
Outotec's scope of delivery covers the license for Outotec fluidized bed advanced staged gasification technology and engineering and delivery of the main process equipment for a 25 MWe waste-to-energy plant as well as advisory services for installation, commissioning and start-up.
The process will divert a significant amount of waste away from landfill sites, ensuring this valuable resource is used sensibly and sustainably.

The plant is expected to be fully operational in 2018.
