German waste to energy technology specialist Martin will supply technology for a waste to energy plant to be located at the Binn Eco Park near Perth, Scotland. With a design capacity of 85,000 tonnes per year, the wte facility is being built by Paprec Energies and the local waste management company Binn Group. Martin announced in mid-November that it will supply a Vario reverse acting grate with two runs for the project as well as a combustion control system. Binn and Paprec were awarded a ten-year residual waste treatment contract by the Perth & Kinross Council this past summer. The new energy recovery facility is slated to go online in 2026.
Last month, Martin announced that it had established a UK business unit that would operate as Martin Renewables Solutions Ltd (MRS). The business is to offer OEM tailor-made solutions for the complete combustion train in close cooperation with Martin's main offices in Munich and those of its flue gas subsidiary LAB in Lyon, France.
In early November, Martin announced that it had received an order for a new combustion system in Florida from the waste management company Covanta. The three-run reverse-acting grate is to be installed in a new, fourth combustion line at Covanta's Pasco County wte plant near Tampa Bay. The grate system will have a design capacity of 495 tonnes per day and the new line will increase the facility's total processing capacity by nearly 50 per cent.
