Sumitomo SHI FW (SFW) and WOIMA Finland Oy (WOIMA) have signed an agreement to deliver the modular wasteWOIMA® waste-to-energy plants. SFW becomes a strategic investor in WOIMA, combining SFW’s renowned expertise in power technology, project execution and global reach with WOIMA’s innovative plant design.
The wasteWOIMA® plant is a unique solution for environmental issues of landfilling and growing municipal waste. It fits small and medium-size cities with local waste management and energy generation.
The plant utilizes robust grate combustion technology to safely treat a wide range of solid wastes, complying with the most stringent environmental standards. It serves a waste collection area of 100,000-500,000 people and converts from 30,000 up to 200,000 tons of non-recyclable waste annually into renewable electricity and heating or cooling.
The concept is scalable and allows for fast deployment: it has 1-4 combustion lines and is based on container-size modules. These workshop-fabricated and pre-assembled modules guarantee a high-quality, cost-effective solution with simple delivery and fast construction. Advanced plant automation and standardized maintenance ensure high plant reliability and reduced operating costs.
