Keppel Seghers, the environmental technology division of Keppel Integrated Engineering (KIE) has secured a $13.5 million contract from Tianjin Taihuan Recycling Resources Utilisation Co. Ltd to provide technologies and services for its waste-to-energy (WtE) plant.
Keppel Seghers will supply, install and commission its air-cooled grate and nitrogen oxide removal using SNCR (Selective Non Catalytic Reaction) technology to convert acidic nitrogen oxide components into harmless nitrogen.
The Tianjin Taihuan plant will be the first plant in China to be installed with SNCR technology, enabling the nitrogen oxide emission level to be even lower than already stringent European standards.
Located in Guanzhuang, Tianjin, the WtE plant will be able to treat 1,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste a day to generate 20 MW of green energy when it is completed in end-2008.
Mr Chua Chee Wui, CEO of Keppel Seghers, said, “This contract is a vote of confidence from our valued customer that we can deliver cost-effective and robust environmental solutions to meet their needs.'
“It also reaffirms our position as the market leader for imported waste-to-energy solutions in China where we have 60% of the market.”
Separately, Keppel Seghers has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on strategic partnership and investment with Tianjin Teda Environmental Protection Co., Ltd.
Under the terms of the MOU, Keppel Seghers and Tianjin Teda Environmental Protection Co., Ltd will jointly develop and invest in the environmental protection market in China.
Added Mr Chua, “The MOU is part of our continuous effort to grow our presence in China by establishing strategic partnerships with like-minded partners and provide state-of-the-art environmental solutions that are tailored to the needs of our customers.”
The environmental technology and engineering division of Keppel Corporation, Keppel Seghers (through Keppel Integrated Engineering) has an established track record of quality solutions and innovative products in China. To date, it is involved in the development of WtE plants in Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Changshu and Jiangyin.
