By generating energy from residual waste, the power plant will offer environmentally friendly solutions by maximising recycling and minimising waste disposal. It features high efficiency incineration technology and complies with the EU's conditions on energy waste processing. When complete, the power plant will annually process up to 600 thousand tonnes of waste, which would have otherwise ended up in landfills and will generate energy for up to 80,000 households. It will also produce enough heat for up to 50,000 homes in the district.
The project was commissioned as a public-private partnership with Dublin City Council acting on behalf of the four local bodies of Dublin and the American company Covanta. The EPC supplier for the contract is Hitachi Zosen Inova AG, a direct customer of Doosan Škoda Power. When complete the power plant will be owned and operated by the American Covanta Holding Corp.
"Our priority was to provide Hitachi Zosen Inova with the necessary support during the whole project up to the final solution optimisation. All the partners involved in the project were very cooperative and the entire process has been very inspiring. We hope to partner them in future projects and further the relationship between our companies,” said Václav Černý, Business Manager - Doosan Škoda Power.
