Siemens Energy technology selected by Hitachi Zosen Inova for Waste-to-Energy plant in UAE

Hitachi Zosen Inova is part of a consortium, comprising Dubai Holding, Dubal Holding, ITOCHU Corporation, BESIX Group, and Tech Group, to develop the plant, which will be built and operated under a 35-year concession period with Dubai Municipality.  
Siemens Energy will primarily supply electrical house substations to deliver distributed power to the entire process plant, which will be in continuous operations.  
Siemens Energy will provide equipment such as switchgears, distribution transformers, and a variety of other power solutions for the project, designed to meet stringent requirements, to ensure highly reliable operations and low emission electricity.  
The Dubai Waste Management Center will have capacity to process 1.9 million tons of waste per year, which is equivalent to 45 percent of Dubai’s current municipal waste generation, and convert it to renewable energy.  
The facility supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, as well as the goals set out by Dubai Municipality, to minimize the volume of municipal waste in landfills and develop alternative energy sources, sustainably and ecologically.  
“We are proud that our innovative technologies have been selected by Hitachi Zosen Inova to support the Dubai Waste Management Center. This will be a regional landmark for sustainability, reducing landfill waste, and producing renewable energy,” said Dietmar Siersdorfer, Managing Director, Siemens Energy Middle East.  
“This is an ecologically important project for the country, in terms of sustainability and renewable power generation with low emissions, and will encourage further sustainable developments throughout the region. Siemens Energy’s efficient technology will be fundamental to ensuring highly reliable operations, whilst meeting stringent requirements,” said Roni Araijy, Country Sales Director at Hitachi Zosen Inova and responsible for the Middle East.
