SITA Polska has signed a 25 year contract to build and operate a 220,000 tonne per year waste to energy plant in the city of Poznañ, Poland.
According to the company – a part of SUEZ Environnement (Paris: SEV, Brussels: SEVB) – the contract is the largest ever Public Private Partnership (PPP) tender in Poland, with a construction cost estimated at some 725 million zloty ($229 million).
The project is being undertaken by SITA Green Energy, a joint venture which has been fully financed by SITA Polska and Maguerite Waste Polska, a subsidiary of the Marguerite Fund.
The technology for the plant is being supplied by Hitachi Zosen Inova, while HOCHTIEF Poland will carry out the construction work.
Power and heat produced at the facility will be sold to utility company Dalkia, with the City of Poznañ set to benefit from the revenue generated.
SITA said that the facility is expected to be commissioned in the second half of 2016, and will allow the city to meet the EU regulatory requirements for limiting the amount of municipal waste sent to landfill.
