Pingdu Begins Operation. EfW: Annual 70,000 MW/h From 600 Tonnes Of Daily Waste

China Everbright International Limited has announced that the Group’s Pingdu Waste-to-energy Project Phase I in Shandong Province has completed construction and commenced operation. Pingdu Project Phase I commenced construction in December 2015 and passed the “72 +24” hours trial run on 4 January 2017. The project previously obtained a subsidy of RMB32 million under the 2016 Central Budgetary Investment Plan. It was constructed on a BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) model with a total investment of approximately RMB360 million. The project has a designed daily household waste processing capacity of 600 tonnes and is expected to generate approximately 70,000,000 kWh of green electricity annually. Gas emissions fully comply with the Euro 2010 Standard.

Furthermore, following Suzhou Waste-to-energy Project in Jiangsu Province, Everbright International’s Nanjing Waste-to-energy Project in Jiangsu Province and Ningbo Waste-to-energy Project in Zhejiang Province, have both received the AAA grade of the harmless level of household waste processing facility. This was awarded by the provincial departments of housing and urban-rural development in the two provinces and is the highest honour within the industry. Everbright International and the projects have received recognition from the provincial departments after the local officials conducted on-site inspections and assessed the construction, operation and management of the projects.

Mr Chen Xiaoping, CEO of Everbright International, said, “The commencement of the Pingdu Project Phase I’s operation marks a good start to 2017 for Everbright International. Adhering to the Group’s approach of striving for excellence and being pragmatic, the project team gradually carried forward the construction of the project over the past year to provide an environmental-friendly and highly effective waste processing solution for the local communities. Everbright International follows the principles of pursuing excellence, harmony and win-win outcomes. Besides aiming for high quality, the Group’s projects also look to foster harmony within society and create mutual benefits. It is very encouraging to see our projects attaining the industry’s highest AAA grade recognition again. With the trust and expectations by the local governments and residents, Everbright International will ensure its projects maintain safe and efficient daily operations in compliance with discharge standards, so as to effectively improve the quality of the local environment.”

Enel Starts Construction Of Australia’s Largest Solar PV Project

The Bungala Solar One facility is part of the Bungala Solar PV Project and will have an installed capacity of 137.7 MW out of a total of more than 275 MW for the whole project, that will be able to produce 570 GWh per year. The facility will cover an area of approximately 300 hectares and will consist of about 420,000 polycrystalline PV modules mounted on single-axis tracker structures which will follow the Sun’s path from east to west; increasing the amount of energy produced by the plant, compared to PV modules with fixed structures. The overall Bungala Solar PV project is expected to become fully operational in early 2019.

Grids Integration, Energy Networks Boosted By Distributed Generation Growth

Renewable energy has continued to develop at ever increasing rates, with remarkable growth seen since the start of this decade. The pace of the energy transition is driving innovation and growth in related sectors. For energy networks and grids integrating small gas turbines, micro-turbines, fuel cells, biomass, small hydropower, wind and solar energy; distributed generation installation provides significant solutions in the restructured electricity regime. This is particularly so, where there is a larger uncertainty in demand and supply.
