EEW wins contract to build and operate Gdansk energy-from-waste plant

Germany-headquartered EEW Energy from Waste has been awarded a contract to build and operate an energy-from-waste plant in the Polish city of Gdansk by the city’s publicly-owned waste management company, Zaklad Utylizacyjny (ZUT).

Bernard M. Kemper, CEO of Chinese-owned German firm, EEW, described the successful participation in the tender process as a milestone for its project work in Poland and a win for both sides.

“For us, the award of this contract represents our entry into the Polish market,” he said.

Kemper added that by partnering with EEW, ZUT will benefit not only from nearly 50 years of experience in waste to energy, as well as synergy effects with the 18 plants in the EEW Group.

The annual thermal treatment capacity at the Gdansk plant, which will operate under the name Port Czystej Energii, will be around 160,000 tonnes of waste. The waste feedstock is expected to have a calorific value of approximately 11 megajoules per kilogram.

Following construction of the plant, EEW Polska will operate the single-line grate firing system on behalf of the publicly owned waste management company ZUT for 25 years.

“The EEW Group is known for the highest environmental standards, economic efficiency and high plant availability. We are now looking forward to being able to demonstrate our abilities in Poland as well,” said Frank Paasche, managing director of the Polish subsidiary EEW Polska.
