Sterling and Wilson Solar (SWSL) has received the first order worth Rs 1,500 crore for its waste-to-energy business from a leading developer of energy assets in the UK and Europe.
In September 2021, the company had announced expansion of its renewable energy offerings to include hybrid energy, energy storage and waste-to-energy solutions. The facility will process 23.2 tonne of non-recyclable solid municipal waste per hour, diverting over 1,85,600 tonne of waste each year.
The facility will generate around 19.6 MW of energy, enough to power over 30,000 homes and also provide heat that can be used by nearby businesses.
The scope of work for this project includes design, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and testing of the facility, boiler (fuel – Refused Derived Fuel), 19 MWe steam turbine generator and condenser, pollution control equipment, water treatment plant, associated balance of plant and subsequent O&M. The construction will start in Q3/FY22 and take over three years to commission
