Our Bureau Hyderabad | Updated on January 13, 2018

Ramky Enviro Engineers Ltd, through its subsidiary Delhi MSW Solutions Ltd (DMSWL), has commissioned a ₹650-crore, 24 MW waste-to-energy plant in Delhi.

The plant has been synchronised with the grid and commercial production has commenced. The Delhi Electricity regulator has fixed the tariff at ₹7.03 per kWh.

The plant combusts 1,200-1,600 tonnes per day of waste incineration with 2 MSW combustors each of 600-800 tonnes and electricity generation capacity of 24 MW.

After the inauguration of the project, Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu said it is aligned to the spirit of the SwachhBharat Mission, the flagship project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Alla Ayodhya Rami Reddy, Chairman of the Hyderabad-based Ramky Group, said the commissioning of the waste-to-energy plant ushers in a new phase in the country’s waste management industry. The technology marks the beginning of a new era in urban waste management, more specifically for large municipal corporations, he added.

The project deploys multiple processes such as composting, refuse derived fuel and waste-to-energy (thermal processing) to derive optimum advantage of processing to minimise the landfill foot print of the residues. The processing facility has a capacity to treat 2,000 tonnes a day. The plant can produce about 150 tonnes per day of city compost which is sold as a soil enricher through multiple fertiliser selling companies.

The plant is equipped with reciprocating grate technology coupled with semi dry type flue gas treatment system and helps control particulate emissions, said the company.
