Sterling and Wilson Solar lands its first waste-to-energy project


Indian multinational Sterling and Wilson Solar Limited, one of the world’s leading solar EPC and O&M solutions providers, today announced that it has landed the first order for its waste-to-energy business. The project, worth around INR 1,500 crore, has been awarded by a leading developer of energy assets in the UK and Europe

Last month, the Company had expanded its renewable energy offerings to include hybrid energy, energy storage, and waste-to-energy solutions.

The facility will process 23.2 tonnes of non-recyclable solid municipal waste per hour, diverting over 185,600 tonnes of waste each year. It shall generate around 19.6 MW of energy, enough to power over 30,000 homes, and will also provide heat that can be used by nearby businesses.

Amit Jain, Global CEO, Sterling and Wilson Solar Group, said, “We are delighted to have bagged our first order in the waste-to-energy segment, which we recently forayed into. This is a double delight since it is also our first order in the European market, further cementing our position as the most trusted partner in the EPC segment. Since waste-to-energy projects have a larger execution period, through such orders, the Company will be able to manage a consistent revenue stream year-on-year.”

“This is an important project for the region, in terms of sustainability and renewable power generation. With over two billion tonnes of municipal waste produced globally each year, the treatment of non-recyclable trash that otherwise emits methane from landfills will help reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere,” he added.

Sterling and Wilson Solar’s scope of work in the project includes design, engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, and testing of the facility, boiler (fuel – Refused Derived Fuel), 19 MWe steam turbine generator and condensor, pollution control equipment, water treatment plant, the associated balance of plant and subsequent operation and maintenance. Construction will start in the third quarter of FY2021-22 and will take over three years to commission.
