The Poznań facility will be equipped with two boilers installed inside a steel, 43-metre-tall structure. The devices will enable the recovery of energy and heat during the waste incineration process. The energy processed in this way will meet the demand of an estate with tens of thousands of residents. On 25 March this year, journalists were the first to be invited to see the current stage of construction. The press meeting at the site was divided into two stages. The first part consisted of a presentation prepared by representatives of the City and Sita Zielona Energia Sp. z o.o.; it showed both the important role of MWTTP in the Poznań waste management system as a whole, as well as technical and technological solutions of the system being applied. The second part of the meeting was moved to the site of the project itself, where guests could take photos and conduct individual interviews with the hosts.
Currently, the first boiler is being installed; work on the second boiler will begin in mid-April this year. Then, both components will undergo appropriate pressure tests. 'Installation of boilers takes into account the specific requirements of their operation and reduction of pollution, meeting the EU BAT (Best Available Techniques) standard. This means that the technological solutions used at MWTTP are at the highest available level of development and achieve the best efficiency', said Szymon Cegielski, Contract Director at SITA Zielona Energia.
Work on the construction of MWTTP is going according to schedule. So far, 2 700 tons of steel have been used, which is 91% of the total steel planned for construction of the plant, and 16 500 m3 of concrete, which is 87% of the total quantity of this material required for the creation of the waste-powered heat and power plant.
