Kapp delivers 144 heat exchangers for Waste-to-Energy

21 November 2019

Kapp received an order for engineering and delivery of 144 heat exchangers for a Waste-to-Energy factory in Asia.

The 144 heat exchangers will serve as air preheaters and can be divided into low pressure (8 bar), medium pressure (24 bar) and high pressure (81 bar) units. Kapp cooperated with Kelvion to fulfill this order. The production location of Kelvion in Poland has over 60 years of experience in the production and delivery of tube bundles and complete modules.

The production of heat exchangers is progressing smoothly. The first part of the order is completed, packed solidly and seaworthy and transported to Asia in the Q4 of 2019. The next batch will be sent before the year ends and the final batch of heat exchangers is expected to follow in the beginning of 2020.

The construction, commissioning and test phase of the entire factory have to be finalized in 2024. After its commissioning, the Waste-to-Energy factory will be processing 3,200 tonnes of mixed municipal waste per day. Of those, 3,000 tonnes will be converted into electricity per day and 200 tonnes will be sorted and recycled per day.
