High-Efficiency Power Plant
When it became clear that greater incineration capacity was needed, the city also decided to build a fourth-generation waste incineration plant: the High-Efficiency (HE) power plant, which was completed in 2007. The HE power plant was equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including several proprietary innovations created in the W2E plant. Thanks to these innovations, including an advanced reheating system, the electrical HE power plant has reached an efficiency level of 30%. The combined processing capacity of the W2E and HE plants are 1,400,000 tons of waste per year.
