Doosan Lentjes and Arikon to supply the Wiesbaden waste-to-energy plant

September 2021. Doosan Lentjes and ARIKON have been awarded the contract in a consortium for the turnkey delivery of the new waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Wiesbaden, Germany. Doosan Lentjes, a specialist in environmental technology, will be responsible as general contractor for the turnkey planning, delivery, assembly, and commissioning of the entire plant. ARIKON Hoch- und Ingenieurbau GmbH, meanwhile, will be responsible for the civil works. The commissioning of the new plant is expected to start early 2024.

The new power plant will comprise one process line, including grate, boiler, and dry flue gas cleaning as well as water-steam cycle. The owner and operator will be MHKW Wiesbaden GmbH. After completion, the facility will thermally treat about 200,000 tonnes of municipal and commercial waste from the greater Wiesbaden area per year.

"We are pleased to be able to support our client in establishing safe and future-proof disposal capacities," says Gerhard Lohe, Director of Thermal Waste Treatment at Doosan Lentjes. "MHKW Wiesbaden GmbH benefits from our proven technologies, which enable reliable plant operation with high availability. At the same time, the processes can be flexibly adapted to changing fuel properties. Thus, even possible changes in the composition of the waste will not prevent the plant from reliably operating over its lifetime." sagt Gerhard Lohe, Direktor thermische Abfallbehandlung bei Doosan Lentjes. „Die MHKW Wiesbaden GmbH profitiert dabei von unseren bewährten Technologien, die einen verlässlichen Anlagenbetrieb mit hoher Verfügbarkeit ermöglichen. Gleichzeitig können die Prozesse flexibel an sich ändernde Brennstoffeigenschaften angepasst werden. Somit stehen auch mögliche Änderungen in der Zusammensetzung des Abfalls einem zuverlässigen Anlagenbetrieb über ihre Lebensdauer nicht im Wege.“

„Wir errichten gemeinsam mit Doosan Lentjes im Auftrag der MHKW Wiesbaden GmbH eine der modernsten Anlagen Europas. Als ARIKON Hoch- und Ingenieurbau GmbH mit dem Schwerpunkt Industriebau ist das Projekt natürlich eine großartige Gelegenheit, zusammen mit Doosan Lentjes unsere Kompetenzen zu bündeln und einen Beitrag zur Etablierung moderner Umwelttechnologien im Bereich der Energiegewinnung zu leisten“, führt Ingo Habig, Geschäftsführer der ARIKON Hoch- und Ingenieurbau GmbH, aus.

In the overall technological process, the plant technology applied will produce electricity and district heating from the energy contained in the waste. The use of this energy, which is largely of biogenic origin, represents a sustainable alternative to burning fossil fuels. Thus, the MHKW will make an important contribution to saving climate-damaging CO2 emissions.2-Emissionen leisten.

Wiesbaden will be the first project of this kind that Doosan Lentjes and ARIKON deliver together. The two companies have a long history of working together on various power plant projects outside the field of waste incineration. The results showed that customers can trust that they will receive a reliable solution tailored to their individual needs with an optimal cost-benefit ratio.
