Under the contracts, Keppel Seghers will provide core equipment and technical services for the plants' furnaces and boilers.

Keppel Infrastructure CEO Dr Ong Tiong Guan said: “Building on our track record of providing reliable WTE technology across China, we are pleased to strengthen our presence in Beijing, as well as mark our entry into Hunan Province with the Yueyang WTE plant.”

"Capable of burning a combined 2,220t of waste a day, both the Beijing and Hunan WTE plants are set to be operational by 2019."

The Yueyang WTE plant will have a daily incineration capacity of 1,220t of waste and will be able to provide up to 25MW of green electricity.

With a daily incineration capacity of 1,000t waste, the Fangshan WTE plant will be able to generate around 20MW of electricity.

Keppel Seghers currently provides around 45% of the total installed treatment capacity of imported systems for WTE plants in Beijing, China. Last year, the company secured five contracts in the country to provide WTE technology and services.
