"When faced with the challenge of building one of the largest waste-to-energy plants in its history to date, our French client – CNIM – contacted us at an early stage. Thanks to an excellent cooperation, MAN supported CNIM in the development of various, optimal solutions for turbine-generator sets and finally won the contract," said Holger Kube, Head of Sales – Steam Turbines – MAN Diesel & Turbo, Oberhausen.
CNIM’S Environment Division, based in Vélizy in south-western Paris, is general contractor (EPC) for the Wilton 11 project. CNIM has valuable experience from previous projects involving MAN Diesel & Turbo steam turbines. "MAN Diesel & Turbo has brought a comprehensive, technical competence to our project and is a partner that we know we can rely on," stated Olivier Serres, Steam Turbine & Condenser Purchaser at CNIM.
In addition to supplying the turbine, the contract also includes the generator, condenser, lube-oil system and the complete instrumentation-and-control technology. The end-customer and operator, SITA Sembcorp UK, will dispose up to 60 metric tons of waste per hour on two incineration lines. The generated heat will produce live steam, which will then expand in the steam turbine to drive the coupled electrical generator and generate electricity. The steam turbine is equipped with one controlled extraction and several bleeds, which will be used to feed the industrial complex’s process-steam network.
