S&W Solar Wins its 1st Waste-to-energy Project Worth ~₹1,500 cr

Sterling and Wilson Solar Limited (S&W), which provides solar EPC and O&M solutions, has stated that it has received its first order, worth around Rs 1,500 crore, for its waste-to-energy business from a leading developer of energy assets in the UK and Europe. Last month, the company had announced expansion of its renewable energy offerings to include hybrid energy, energy storage and waste-to-energy solutions.

The facility will process 23.2 tonnes of non-recyclable solid municipal waste per hour, diverting over 185,600 tonnes of waste each year, the company said. The facility is expected to generate around 19.6 MW of energy, enough to power over 30,000 homes, and also provide heat that can be used by nearby businesses.

Mr. Amit Jain, Global CEO, Sterling and Wilson Solar Group said, “We are delighted to have bagged our first order in the waste-to-energy segment, which we recently forayed into. This is a double delight since it is also our first order in the European market, further cementing our position as the most trusted partner in the EPC segment. Since waste-to-energy projects have a larger execution period, through such orders, the Company will be able to manage a consistent revenue stream year-on-year.”

“This is an important project for the region, in terms of sustainability and renewable power generation. With over two billion tonnes of municipal waste produced globally each year, the treatment of non-recyclable trash that otherwise emits methane from landfills will help reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere,” he added.

The scope of work for this project includes design, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and testing of the facility, boiler (fuel – Refused Derived Fuel), 19 MWe steam turbine generator and condensor, pollution control equipment, water treatment plant, associated balance of plant and subsequent O&M. The project’s construction will start in Q3 FY22 and will take over three years to be commissioned, said S&W Solar.
