Standardkessel Baumgarte selected to build new Stapelfeld EfW plant

Germany-based Standardkessel Baumgarte GmbH (SBG), a subsidiary of Japan-headed JFE Engineering Corporation (JFEE) has recently announced that it has received an order to construct a new EfW plant for EEW Energy from Waste GmbH (EEW Energy) subsidiary, EEW Energy from Waste Stapelfeld GmbH in Stapelfeld, Germany.

According to a statement, the new plant will replace an existing EfW plant at Stapelfeld, northeast of Hamburg, and consists of two separate units, a thermal waste treatment plant for household waste and a mono combustion-sludge incineration plant.

SBG received the order to supply the steam generator and grate firing system for the new EfW plant. The value of the order has not been disclosed.

In the future, the new EfW plant in Stapelfeld will thermally utilize municipal solid waste (MSW), household-type commercial waste, and processed municipal waste and feed electricity and heat into the network of the Stapelfeld municipality and the Hanseatic City of Hamburg.

The new 120 MWth EfW plant will use the energy contained in the waste much more efficiently than the existing plant, which is almost 40 years old.

With the same amount, 320 000 to 350 000 tonnes of waste per annum, the heat and electricity output is expected to be almost doubled with extremely low emissions.
