How will this waste to energy plant be operated?
A WTE Plant can be located adjacent to an existing dumpsite, on 5 to 6 hectare plot to be assigned with good access. One main advantage of the new WTE plant being sited adjacent to the existing MSW dump site is, there are existing garbage trucks already accessing the site, so very little new infrastructure will be required to divert the existing dump trucks to the new WTE Plant.
The plant will be fully operated by ATKINS on a turnkey basis
We have been involved in the development of innovative renewable energy projects such as waste to energy and solar systems throughout Africa. Ghanergize Power has established strong links with the government and private sector groups.
Ghanergize Power has developed a large network of expert partners. We work with companies such as ATKINS to develop a full turnkey project to deliver for our clients.
The Ultra High Temperature Hydrology (UHTH) Reaction process technology has been developed as a state of the art
solution for the eradication of all forms of MSW and Toxic Materials that are typically sent to the local landfill sites. UHTH
technology has been developed and tested successfully over the past 20 years, and this is the first time the technology has
been made available outside of Europe.
Ghana’s first project to produce electricity from non-segregated waste. Using an innovative technology called gasification, a conservatively estimated 750 metric tonnes of waste per day will produce 37 megawatts of electricity every hour (372,000 MWh per year). Even better, there will be no emission, landfill or other waste from the process. Under the gasification technology, mixed waste will be treated at ultra-high temperature in the absence of oxygen to produce a synthetic gas that will be used further for production of electricity.
How will this be funded?
A fully privately funded Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Waste to Energy (WTE) initiative, in line with the best World and European practices, legislation and Health and Safety, for MSW eradication. A 25-year Build, Own and Operate (commercial operation) WTE Plant, with a capacity to receive the daily MSW received/collected from major residential towns/areas in to be processed to electricity for the community and backed by a Government PPA.
The project is now fully funded.
Financial close July 2018.
The land has now been acquired
Final negotiations on the PPA are expected to complete by June 2018.
