Keppel Infrastructure Holdings’ wholly owned subsidiary, Keppel Seghers Belgium, obtained a contract to supply waste-to-energy (WTE) technology and services valued at more than 70 million euros for Australia’s first WTE plant in Kwinana, Keppel said on Thursday.

Keppel Seghers will provide core equipment, design and technical services for the plant’s furnace, boiler and flue gas treatment to the Acciona consortium, which is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the project, it said in a filing to SGX on Thursday.

The Kwinana facility will use Keppel Seghers air-cooled grate and vertical boiler, it said.

The plant, developed by Macquarie Capital and Phoenix Energy, will be located around 40 km south of Perth, and will be able to process up to 400,000 tonnes of waste a year, while exporting an estimated 36MW of green electricity to the grid, it said.

Keppel Infrastructure is a division of Keppel Corp., it said.

Acciona is a consortium of Acciona Industrial Australia, Acciona Construction Australia and John Beever Pty., it said.
