Mitsubishi Electric has won a $1.7m contract for a new waste-to-energy plant in the UK.

It will supply a turnkey medium voltage electrical balance-of-plant solution for the facility in Flintshire, North Wales and the scope of the project includes engineering, installation and commissioning services.

With the capability to process 200,000 tonnes a year of post-recycled municipal solid waste, the facility will have a generating capacity of around 19 MW of energy.

Built on a former steelworks, the new facility has been named Wheelabrator Parc Adfer – Adfer being Welsh for ‘recover’. It is expected to be operational in around a year’s time.

The plant is being built by French industrial engineering contractor CNIM SA for US waste-to-energy specialist Wheelabrator Technologies. It will be Wheelabrator’s fourth waste-to-energy plant in Britain.

Mitsubishi Electric will supply 11kV medium voltage switchgear, power and distribution transformers, PLC hardware, HMIs and associated cabling, as well as providing project management and engineering services.
