Plant №4 in Moscow process 250,000 ton of municipal solid waste (MSW) per year. The plant core technology is such an advanced technology of incineration as a fluidized bed. Flue gas cleaning utilises cyclones, spray absorbers, reactors for fly ash and fabric bag filters. Totally, three world-leading companies supplied equipment for the plant: Hölter (now Air Liquide), Von Roll and Konecranes.
Main technology of the MSW Plant 4 – Moscow
At the beginning of the millennium, German company Hölter took leading positions on the European market in the production of incineration equipment. Their technology of the fluidized bed provides higher energy output and better burning of the waste. That is to say, technology also has some drawbacks in a bit more complexity and higher demand to the consumables. Later, the French company Air Liquide acquired Hölter and now holds its technology.
Swiss company Von Roll takes leading positions in the incineration industry for decades. The company delivered many incineration plants to many countries across the world, focusing on European Union first. For the MSW Plant 4 – Moscow Von Roll supplied important secondary equipment like furnaces, boilers, automation components etc.
Loading of the waste to the furnace provide overhead cranes with grabs. Crane transfers the waste into the feed hopper where it is then pushed into the incinerator for burning. Loading of the waste performs in semi-automatic mode: the crane operator moves the crane to the point where to get the waste and pushes the loading button with the feed hopper number. The crane grabs the waste and discharges it to the feed hopper automatically. For this plant, cranes were provided by the world-leading supplier of overhead cranes, Finnish company Konecranes.
