The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build one of Australia’s biggest waste to energy facilities has been awarded, creating more than 300 construction jobs.
ACCIONA will deliver the project in partnership with Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI), which will provide the technology and equipment for the facility.
Located in East Rockingham, around 40 kilometres south of Perth, the facility will recover resources from around 3000,000 tonnes of residual waste from municipal, commercial and industrial sources each year. In addition, the facility will recover up to 30,000 tonnes of biosolids.
Around 29 megawatts of renewable energy will be produced, enough to power 36,000 homes.
