Energy From Waste, Yorkshire, UK

Industrial | Case Study

The Client

Multifuel Energy Ltd (MEL) is a joint venture between SSE plc and Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. Their £300 million power generation plant at Ferrybridge in West Yorkshire has a capacity of around 68MW of low carbon electricity using a range of fuel sources, including up to 675,000 tonnes per year of waste-derived fuels from various sources of municipal solid waste, commercial and industrial waste and waste wood. The main contractor was Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI), a leading global energy from waste engineering contractor. Construction began in October 2012, and the plant became fully operational in July 2015.

The Client's Needs

Incoming waste is shredded and transferred to a bunker from which it is fed to the combustion zone of a 5-pass high pressure boiler to raise steam to power a turbine generator boiler. Make-up water for the boiler has to meet a very high quality specification of conductivity <0.1µS/cm, silica <5µg/kg and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) <0.1µg/kg.
