According to a statement, the new orders help STRABAG strengthen its leading role, above all internationally, for its patented dry fermentation LARAN plug-flow digester anaerobic digestion (AD) technology for the production of biogas from waste.
MBT project in Israel
Record-breaking in two respects is the Shafdan infrastructure project in Israel. The project took almost seven years to go from pre-qualification to contract award by the Zero Waste Ltd joint venture consisting of G.E.S. Global Environmental Solutions and Shikun & Binui.
Shafdan is one of the world’s largest and most modern mechanical-biological waste treatment (MBT) plants with an annual waste input of approximately 350 000 tonnes. Of this amount, around 150 000 tonnes will go into the AD plant following upstream processing and sorting.
STRABAG is not only supplying all of the waste digestion technology for this project but is also acting separately as the MBT expert for the construction and operation of the entire plant for the client.
It also marks the first time that STRABAG Environmental Technology is realizing five anaerobic digester units operating in parallel at a single site.
France, Switzerland, and Réunion
In addition to this lighthouse project, STRABAG and its French partner Biovalis have secured two projects in different consortium constellations for the group’s LARAN dry fermentation technology.
One of the contracts is in Alleriot, France, with GCBAT Bourgogne Franche Comte as a consortium partner, while the other project is in Geneva in French-speaking Switzerland, with PoleBio as client and RMIS as a consortium partner.
STRABAG is the consortium partner responsible for the technology aspect in both projects, specifically anaerobic digestion and biogas production based on the LARAN technology.
With these two new projects, along with the approval awarded in early August for the execution of a previously secured contract in Pierrefonds on the island of Réunion for Constructions Industrielles de la Méditerranée( CNIM), and the Shafdan project in Israel, STRABAG strengthens position its position as a dry fermentation technology supplier.
Compost tunnel in Russia
Apart from its LARAN fermentation technology, the company is “particularly pleased” about a new order from Russia. In this contract, STRABAG is responsible for the basic engineering as well as the delivery of equipment and control technology for the new tunnel composting plant of a mechanical-biological treatment (MBT) plant to be built in Krasnoturyinsk in the Urals.
