China Everbright secures operation rights for Wuxi Xidong waste-to-energy project

Hong Kong-based China Everbright International has announced that it has secured the entrusted operation rights of Wuxi Xidong household waste-to-energy project in Jiangsu Province, and will be responsible for managing and operating the venture. 

The Xidong project is designed to process around 2,000 tonnes of household waste and is expected to generate more than 243,000,000 kWh of green electricity annually.

The construction of the plant completed in 2011, but has not yet commenced operations.

In a statement, Everbright International said it will upgrade the “relevant facilities at the project in order to ensure it complies with the international standards”. 

Chen Xiaoping, CEO of Everbright International, said: "The Wuxi municipal government’s decision to have Everbright International to activate the Xidong project signifies yet another example of the successful use of the group’s technological expertise and experience in waste-to-energy.

“Whether it is in technology, equipment or operations management, the Group’s overall capabilities are widely recognised. ‘Entrusted operation rights’ will become a new approach to cooperation in which the Group will leverage its technology, equipment and experience to lead the development of the waste-to-energy sector.

“Everbright International is committed to developing Xidong project into a high quality waste-to-energy project, which will effectively relieve pressure on municipal household waste treatment in Wuxi."
