At the beginning of February 2015, Attero B.V. has placed an order with Kraftanlagen München GmbH for the construction of a steam turbine power station, which will ensure that the energy from its waste incineration plant is used sustainably. The contract comprises the planning and construction of the power station, including the steam turbine, the generator, electrical and I&C engineering, the piping system and the inlet and outlet structures for the cooling water system.
KAM will fulfil the contract in the role of general contractor. In the new power station, the exhaust heat of the waste-to-energy plant will be used to generate electricity. The steam turbine is able to exploit up to more than 450 tons of steam per hour and has an electrical output of more than 120 MW.
In Moerdijk, Attero has been operating a waste incineration plant since 1997. The plant has four processing lines and an annual capacity of one million tons of waste. Attero intends to use the steam from the waste incineration itself, in order to generate electricity with the new steam turbine power station. This will allow Attero to secure continuity of waste incineration while improving the efficiency and profitability of the plant.
