MHIEC Receives Order to Build 182 Ton/day Waste Incineration Plant from
Association of Local Municipal Offices in Iwate, Japan
Tokyo, Oct 22, 2012 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
Environmental & Chemical Engineering Co., Ltd. (MHIEC), a wholly owned
subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), has received an order to
construct and operate a municipal solid waste (MSW) incineration plant from a
broad-based association of local municipal offices in central Iwate Prefecture,
including Hanamaki and Kitakami cities. MHIEC will form a consortium with eight
companies, including local firms, to construct a stoker furnace* type
incineration plant with a processing capacity of 182 tons per day (tpd). The
order, in total worth approximately 13.5 billion yen, also calls for operation
of the facility for a period of 20 years and 6 months. The plant is slated to
go into operation in October 2015.
The project to build and operate the "Central Iwate Wide-area Clean
Center (tentative name)" will adopt a "DBO" (design, build and
operate) scheme, under which a public organization such as a local municipality
funds and owns the facility and relegates DBO work to the commercial sector.
The MSW incineration plant on order will consist of two 91 tpd stoker furnaces.
The incineration ash from the plant will be reused as raw material for cement.
The other members of the plant construction consortium led by MHIEC are Jukan
Operation Co., Ltd.; Honma Corporation; Chidatec Co., Ltd.; Odashima Co., Ltd.;
Koiwai Farm, Ltd.; Akita Tohoku Shoji Co., Ltd.; Mitsubishi Paper Engineering
Co., Ltd.; and Mitsubishi Materials Corporation. Operation of the plant will be
handled by Central Iwate Eco-Creation Co., Ltd., a special-purpose company
jointly owned by MHIEC (90%) and Jukan Operation (10%).
The broad-based association of local municipal offices in central Iwate
performs cross-regional administrative work to handle the general waste of
Hanamaki, Kitakami and Tono cities and Nishiwaga township. In line with the
Japanese government's plan to promote waste management through wider-area
cross-regional links, the association has been engaged in a project to
construct a new waste management facility since its establishment in 2002. In
the bidding for the project, comprehensive proposal assessment was performed
that evaluated the candidates' technological expertise and know-how in
addition to their bid amounts. The MHIEC team's proposal was chosen by the
association's selection board.
MHIEC is a world-leading company with a solid track record in the delivery and
operation of waste management facilities both in Japan and overseas. Based on
these strengths, going forward the company will continue to focus on stable
processing of general wastes and recycling, and will aggressively propose
comprehensive solutions from initial design and engineering through operation.
