Giant Dubai waste-to-energy plant picks Konecranes



Konecranes is to supply cranes to one of the world’s largest waste-to-energy plants in Dubai.

An international consortium comprising Hitachi Zosen Inova, Dubai Holding, Dubal Holding, ITOCHU Corporation, BESIX Group and the Tech Group will deliver the engineering, procurement and construction of the turnkey plant, plus a minimum of 30 years’ operation and ownership of the resource recovery facility.

Located in Warsan, Dubai, the facility will treat 5,000 tons of non-recyclable municipal solid waste per day, making a total of up to 1,900,000 tons a year that will be converted into renewable energy.

The 200 MW of electricity generated will be fed into the local grid as baseload energy while construction materials will be produced from the bottom ash.

Konecranes will provide four 28t x 30m span fully automated waste-to-energy process cranes, supplied with 18cuM grabs, and one 65t x 19 m span SMARTON crane for boiler house maintenance use.

The cranes will be delivered to the site in 2022, with handover in 2024
