Waste-to-Energy Plants

Keppel Seghers provides technologies for the treatment of municipal solid waste and sludge. Its waste-to-energy (WTE) plants use advanced technology solutions to generate green energy from waste and help in landfill diversion by as much as 90% through reduction in the volume of waste disposed, thereby maximising the value of waste streams and minimising the environmental impact.


Keppel Seghers has successfully completed more than 100 WTE projects in 18 countries worldwide.

Bialystok Energy-from-Waste Plant

Keppel Seghers handed over the Bialystok waste-to-energy combined heat and power (WTE CHP) project in Poland to the client in December 2015, delivering the project on schedule and on budget.

One of the first WTE plants in Poland to achieve commercial operation, the Bialystok plant can process approximately 120,000 tonnes of waste per year. The facility exports approximately 7.6 MW of electricity to the grid during summer, while during winter, it supplies 17.5 MW of thermal energy to Bialystok's district heating and exports 6.1 MW of electricity to the grid.

Keppel Seghers was part of a consortium, including Budimex S.A, one of Poland's largest construction companies, and Spanish waste management company Cespa Compania Espanola de Servicios Publicos Auxiliares S.A, that won the PLN 333 million Engineering, Procurement and Construction contract awarded by Bialystok's municipal solid waste management company in 2012.

Keppel Seghers supplied its proprietary waste-to-energy technology, including its air-cooled grate and vertical boiler, which are designed to achieve efficient energy recovery and operational reliability, to the facility. The plant also features an Incineration Bottom Ash handling system that extracts ferrous, non-ferrous and aggregate for recycling and a fly ash solidification plant.

Greater Manchester Energy-from-Waste Plant

Keppel Seghers secured the Engineering, Procurement and Construction contracts for Phase I and Phase II of this integrated Energy-from-Waste Combined Heat and Power (CHP) facility, in 2009 and 2010 respectively, with a combined contractual value worth about GBP 390 million. 

This first-of-its-kind CHP plant is one of the largest and most efficient in Europe, with a capacity to treat 750,000 tonnes per annum of Refuse Derived Fuel, and produce 83 MW of electricity and 51.2 MW of heat by steam export. The plant supplies the neighbouring INEOS chemicals manufacturing facility with green energy, reducing its reliance on fossil fuels.

Phase I and Phase II were completed and handed over to the clients in January 2015 and April 2015, respectively.

Baoan Waste-to-Energy Facility in Shenzhen, China

Baoan waste-to-energy facility

Keppel Seghers is the leading provider of imported WTE technology solutions in China. 

On 9 September 2016, Keppel Seghers secured a contract to provide technology and services to the Baoan WTE facility in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China. Awarded by repeat customer Shenzhen Energy Environment Engineering, the contract is for the expansion of the existing facility through the provision of equipment design and technical services for the facility's furnace and boiler components.

Scheduled to be completed by 2018, the Phase III expansion will add an additional 4,675 tonnes per day (TPD), enabling the facility to process up to 8,875 TPD of municipal waste. This will make the Baoan WTE facility the world's largest in terms of incineration capacity. Keppel Seghers also provided the process design, technology and services for Phase I and II of the facility, which were completed in 2006 and 2013 respectively.

Once the project is completed, Keppel Seghers' proprietary technology employed across China will be able to process over 10 million tonnes of municipal waste per year. The waste will be converted into 12,000 MWh of renewable energy per day - which will reduce CO2 emissions by six million tonnes per year.

Domestic Solid Waste Management Centre

Domestic Solid Waste Management Centre

Keppel Seghers was awarded two Design-Build-Operate contracts by the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning (previously known as Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Agriculture) of Qatar to design and build four Waste Transfer Stations and an integrated Domestic Solid Waste Management Centre (DSWMC) to handle and treat domestic solid waste for the whole of Qatar.

Since October 2011, Keppel Seghers has handed over the DSWMC and commenced the 20-year operations and maintenance of the facility with excellent operational and safety records.

The integrated waste management facility is designed to treat up to 2,300 tonnes per day of mixed domestic solid waste. It comprises state-of-the-art waste sorting and recycling facilities, engineered landfill, composting plant and a 1,500 tonnes per day WTE plant.

Keppel Seghers Tuas Waste-to-Energy Plant

Keppel Seghers Tuas WTE Plant is Singapore's fifth incineration plant built, and the first to be done so under the National Environment Agency's Public Private Partnership initiative.

Developed by Keppel Seghers in 2006 and operational since October 2009, it is the first in Singapore to showcase WTE technology from a Singapore company. Built on a land space of only 1.6 hectares, the Keppel Seghers Tuas WTE Plant is one of the most compact WTE facilities in the world.

The plant is equipped with two incinerator-boiler units with one condensing turbine-generator. Incorporating Keppel Seghers' in-house technologies such as the air-cooled grate and flue gas cleaning system, the plant is able to treat 800 tonnes of solid waste daily to generate about 22 MW of green energy.

Senoko Waste-to-Energy Plant

Senoko Waste-to-Energy Plant

Senoko WTE Plant is the third waste incineration plant built in Singapore and is one of the four incineration plants currently operating. It was commissioned in 1992 at a cost of S$560 million on a land area of 7.5 hectares. Senoko WTE Plant is equipped with six incinerator-boiler units with two condensing turbine-generators offering a power generation capacity of 2 x 28 MW.

The Singapore Government decommissioned Ulu Pandan Incineration Plant, the first of the five incineration plants built in Singapore, in August 2009. Following the decommissioning, Senoko WTE Plant is the only waste incineration plant located outside of the Tuas area (which is in the western part of Singapore) and this positions it to serve the eastern, northern and central areas of Singapore.

The Senoko WTE Plant was retrofitted with Keppel Seghers' flue gas treatment technology in June 2012. The upgraded flue gas treatment system is significantly more effective at removing harmful and acidic gases, dust and particulates.

The Senoko WTE Plant is able to treat 2,400 tonnes of waste per day. Together with Keppel Seghers Tuas WTE plant, Keppel can treat almost half of Singapore's total volume of incinerable waste.
