Monetizing wasteWOIMA® Benefits – Low Boiler Height

  The key part of the robust wasteWOIMA® WtE power plant is the horizontal boiler, which not only is more accepting to difficult waste fuels than other boiler types, but also saves costs. Together with the conservative steam parameters, the plants can incinerate practically any type of waste fuel into energy.

The standard horizontal boiler -type wasteWOIMA20 plant is less than 22m high and fits into a building with max height of 25m

  • 25m is a typical maximum heigh for building in built environment in Europe
  • With optional design changes to the fuel feed hopper and empty pass cleaning assembly the plant height can be reduced to below 19m to fit into a 20m high building
  • As a result, the bunker hall height requirement is also lower

WOIMA, in cooperation with our partners, has a standard building design and supply available for wasteWOIMA® customers

Savings are generated through

  • Lower boiler and waste bunker halls
  • Use of smaller cranes in lifts
  • Faster erection process
  • Less support steel material
  • Less maintenance platforms

Combined, these WOIMAbenefits can save over 400,000€ in materials and construction work, and speed up the phase by several weeks.
