The WOIMAdesign caters for the needs of different types of customers when it comes to the number of personnel required to run the wasteWOIMA® WtE plant. Typically, customers in developed countries emphasize the use of more automation due to the high cost of personnel, while projects in emerging countries concentrate on employing more people.

There are several points, where automation can save significant personnel resources and improve operational efficiency, such as

  • Plant control room operations
  • Waste fuel reception and preparation
  • Support fuel and consumables reception and feeding
  • Ashes extraction and storing

The automation-based savings are achieved mainly through lower personnel costs, but also through

  • Simpler human resources management
  • Less plant shutdowns due to personnel issues (strikes, sick leave, vacation…)
  • Optimal plant performance

Combined, these WOIMAbenefits can save up to 5,000,000€ during the WtE plant lifespan in operation and maintenance.
