New waste-to-energy plant
In partnership with our parent company, The Babcock & Wilcox Company, (B&W) and our consortium partner BE&K Construction, we have supplied know-how, technology, and equipment for three huge production lines for the Solid Waste Authority (SWA) in Palm Beach County in West Palm Beach, Florida.
One of the world’s largest waste-to-energy plants
Each line is capable of handling and combusting 900 tonnes of waste per day – a combined total of 2,700 tonnes per day.

We have designed and supplied:
- Three mass burn boilers capable of generating up to 95 gross megawatts of electricity
- DynaGrate® air-cooled and water-cooled combustion grates
- Ash systems
- Metals recovery systems
- Emissions control equipment
- Dry flue gas desulfurisation unit
- Carbon injection and selective catalytic reduction system
- Duct work and other components.
The client also requested our proprietary DynaGrate® combustion grate, the most advanced grate on the market. The plant has a single pass boiler, the North American boiler type, from our parent company The Babcock & Wilcox Company.
The plant has been operating commercially since 2015.
