The WOIMAline® powertrain is highly automated and can, under normal conditions, operate unsupervised, provided that the waste fuel feed system operates automatically as well. On the auxiliary and common equipment side there is more room for different approaches. E.g. the ash extraction systems, chemical feed system and process water purification system can be designed for automatic or manual operation. This choice has no effect on the operating efficiency or emissions of the plant.
The waste segregation can operate completely manually, totally automatically or something in-between. The decision on the operating methodology is typically based on the local cost and availability of labor, customer’s willingness to invest and availability of funds and/or presence of operating and maintenance know-how.
