Modernization / optimization / modifications

ImageTypically, Waste-to-Energy plants have a service life of 20 to 30 years, and frequently even longer. During this period, plant modernizations and modifications are often necessary for a variety of reasons:

  • to ensure compliance with statutory requirements
  • to implement technical innovations/improvements
  • to satisfy new plant requirements (relating to heating value, pollutants, energy recovery, etc)
  • to replace parts/components
  • to optimize plants in terms of operation and/or maintenance
  • to boost plant output
  • etc.


We have abundant experience in the construction and operation of plants throughout the world, and also conduct an extensive program of research and development. We are happy to make this knowledge and experience available to our customers.
