Everbright International starts operation of Pingdu waste-to-energy project
Hong Kong headed one-stop integrated environmental solution provider, China Everbright International Ltd has announced that it has completed construction and commenced operations of its Pingdu waste-to-energy Project Phase I in Shandong Province, China.
According to a statement, the Pingdu Project Phase I commenced construction in December 2015 and passed the “72 +24” hours trial run on January 4 this year. The plant was built on a build, operate and transfer (BOT) model with a total investment of approximately CNY360 million (≈ US$54.34 million) of which CNY32 million (≈ US$4.83 million) was a subsidy under the 2016 Central Budgetary Investment Plan.
The plant has a designed daily household waste processing capacity of 600 tonnes and is expected to generate approximately 70 GWh of green electricity annually.
Top grade recognition
Furthermore, following Suzhou waste-to-energy project in Jiangsu Province, the company’s Nanjing waste-to-energy project in Jiangsu Province and Ningbo waste-to-energy project in Zhejiang Province both have received the “AAA grade” for household waste processing facilities.
Considered the “highest honour” within the industry, the projects were awarded the recognition from the provincial departments of housing and urban-rural development in the two provinces after the local officials conducted on-site inspections and assessed the construction, operation and management of the projects.
The commencement of the Pingdu Project Phase I’s operation marks a good start to 2017 for Everbright International. It is very encouraging to see our projects attaining the industry’s highest AAA grade recognition again. With the trust and expectations by the local governments and residents, Everbright International will ensure its projects maintain safe and efficient daily operations in compliance with discharge standards, so as to effectively improve the quality of the local environment, said Chen Xiaoping, CEO of Everbright International.
