The Integrated Waste Management Facilities (IWMF) is Hong Kong’s first integrated waste management site for municipal solid waste (MSW) and once complete will be the largest waste-to-energy facility in the world, with a capacity of 3,000 tonnes per day. The IWMF aims to substantially reduce the bulk size of mixed MSW and to recover useful resources. It will minimize the landfilling of waste significantly, thereby extending the useable life of landfills and their extensions in Hong Kong. The IWMF will be developed in phases, with six units being built on Shek Kwu Chau, to the south of Lantau Island, Hong Kong.
Clyde Bergemann will supply a complete system for cleaning the boilers, consisting of six SMART Shower-Clean Systems and SMART Rapping Systems. The SMART Shower-Clean System is the largest multi-row system Clyde Bergemann has ever offered. SMART SCS-MR is an extended solution for several guide tube rows over the entire boiler roof. It is recommended for boilers with complex geometry and different cleaning zones.
The SMART Rapping System is a rapping device system, which is a special product for cleaning horizontal superheater paths, especially for waste, biomass and industrial plants. It can be applied to remove deposits from the heating and reaction surfaces without any additional cleaning medium like steam, air or water.
With these special systems, the waste incineration plant in Hong Kong will be optimally equipped for operation. Deliveries are scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2022 and commissioning in summer 2023.
