Emerson Process Management has struck a deal to become the preferred supplier of all automation technology and services for current and future waste-to-energy projects built by Hitachi Zosen Inova.
Zurich-based Hitachi Zosen Inova specializes in thermal and biological treatment of municipal waste.
The $319m plant is set to produce 155,000 MWh of electricity per year, covering the energy requirements of nearly 38,000 households, and will supply 320,000 MWh of steam to an adjacent paper mill.
As the preferred supplier, Emerson Process Management will provide control and safety systems, predictive maintenance software, control valves and measurement devices, and services such as engineering, project management and lifecycle care.
Emerson is currently working with Hitachi Zosen Inova on further waste-to-energy projects in Europe, including three in the UK.
