MAN Steam Turbines for waste sourced power
Waste-to-Energy (WtE) is the treatment and conversion of waste sources into electricity or heat. In many WtE plants the objective is to generate energy by burning waste rather than using it for landfill - a strong pollutant and a waste of a useful resource.
The heat generated by this combustion process is used for power generation resulting in additional profit for the operator. WtE activities in Europe have intensified massively after the 2005 EU Directive prohibiting landfill of non-treated waste.
Steam turbines for WtE
Depending on the customer’s requirements, MAN Diesel & Turbo supplies steam turbine generators for WtE plants and can also include parts of the water-steam-cycle into its scope of supply. Examples of such deliveries may include heating condensers, air-cooled condensers, pre-heaters, by-pass stations and connecting pipe work. A special operational requirement that we encounter in the WtE business is long-term turbine bypass operation. For this requirement turbine blading design can be adapted.
A classic MAN application
Electrical power generation based on waste incineration is an example of a classic application for MAN steam turbines. Recently, MAN Diesel & Turbo delivered the biggest steam turbine generator set for a WtE plant in the U.K. with a power output of 80 MWel.
