DP CleanTech has been awarded the contract to supply the Flue Gas Treatment system for Devon County Council’s first waste-to-energy power plant in Exeter.
The company will design, manufacture, install and commission the complete Flue Gas Treatment system and was awarded the contract by EPC contactor Groupe Tiru SA, who are responsible for the overall delivery of the plant. DP CleanTech opened its specialized Flue Gas Cleaning Division in Wolverhampton, UK at the end of 2011.
Simon Parker, CEO DP CleanTech stated that: ‘“This project represents the next step in our growth strategy – flue gas cleaning being an increasingly important constituent of producing true clean energy. Our decision to focus on the UK is validated with the award of this significant project, and we look forward to increasing our presence further in the UK as it looks to embrace a clean energy future”.
David Ryan, Engineering Manager, DP CleanTech commented: “Historically, a major hindrance to the growth of the waste-to-energy industry is public misconception of the associated emissions and health risks. We are confident that we will significantly exceed the most stringent EU standards, and in so doing drive a real change in attitude towards Municipal Solid Waste as a practical and desirable alternative source of energy.”
DP CleanTech continues to expand its scope in waste-to-energy and sees an enormous potential in the UK both in this sector, and also in biomass to heat and power.
