MHI to build waste-to-energy plant in Singapore

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) is to build a waste-to-energy plant in Singapore.

The plant in Tuas will be able to process up to 3600 tonnes per day of municipal solid waste and have a power generation capacity of 120 MW.

The plant’s stoker furnace-type incinerators and generators are due to go on-stream in the first half of 2019 and will be operated, managed and ma Artist's impression of MHI Tuas waste-to-energy plant intained for 25 years by a consortium comprising MHI and Hyflux, a Singapore water management and environmental solutions provider.

The design-build-own-operate deal for the plant was signed this week between the Hyflux-MHI consortium and the National Environment Agency of Singapore.

Hyflux currently supplies approximately 35 per cent of Singapore's water and had been seeking a business partner in which to expand into the waste-to-energy sector.

The MHI Group has built three waste-to-energy (WTE) facilities in Singapore, including the Tuas South Incineration Plant in 2000, which at 4320 tonnes per day has one of the world's largest processing capacities.

In a statement, MHI said that the group “aims to expand in overseas markets by leveraging its WTE business expertise and establishing a business model for the public-private partnerships that have become a major driver of environmental business growth in Southeast Asia”.
