Construction work has been completed on Poland‘s largest waste-to-power plant, the EPC firm for the project has announced.
Korea‘s Posco E&C said its work on the $250m project was completed in three and a half years, with the plant transferred to owner Krakow Communal Holding on 27 June.
Posco CEO Han Chan-kun said: “The successful construction of the waste-to-power plant in Krakow is expected to become a solid foundation for Posco E&C to enter the environment market in Poland and Eastern Europe. Also, it has raised the status of Korea’s construction industry to a higher level.”
The plant will enable Krakow to meet EU rules on landfill as well as obtain Poland’s green energy certification, enabling the operator to charge a higher price for its power.
