Thermal treatment of waste combined with CHP generation

11.11.2016, Kemsley, Great Britain

On 29/07/2016, Wheelabrator Technologies Inc. awarded our French partner CNIM the contract to build the turnkey K3 CHP plant, which will have the capacity to combust approx. 550,000 tons of waste per year.
The facility, which is expected to come online at the beginning of 2019, will be jointly built by CNIM and the British construction company Clugston in Kemsley near Sittingbourne (Kent) in South East England.
The plant is to feed 43 MW of electricity to the power grid and to supply process steam to the nearby Kemsley Paper Mill, one of the largest paper manufacturing facilities in Europe. The CHP project has been awarded public funding as the plant is designed to achieve a high level of energy efficiency.
For Kemsley, MARTIN will supply two reverse-acting grates, each of which has 5 runs and is 13.140 m wide. Each grate will achieve a gross heat release of 102 MW and a throughput of up to 40.8 t/h.
