Graz, July 1, 2015.
International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from POSCO E&C to supply key equipment for a 50-megawatt bubbling fluidized bed boiler fired with refuse-derived fuel for the greenfield waste-to-energy plant in Pohang, South Korea. Start-up is scheduled for spring 2018.

The scope of supply also includes basic engineering as well as supervisory services for erection and commissioning. The plant will utilize 100,000 tons of pre-treated waste per year and generate power for 20,000 homes in South Korea, thus saving 85,000 tons of CO2 emissions every year.

Established in 1994, POSCO E&C is a total solution provider that stands head and shoulders above the competition in not only steel plant construction, but across all construction sectors based on the technologies and expertise acquired in the construction of its globally competitive Pohang and Gwangyang steelworks.
