Abu Dhabi-based global energy company Taqa has outlined plans to build a 100MW US$850mn waste-to-energy plant in Abu Dhabi to generate power and reduce landfill waste from reaching Al Gharbia
A Gulf News report quoted a senior Taqa executive as saying, “More than 20,000 households will be benefitted with steady power supply after implementation of the project, while 1,000,000 tonnes of landfill waste will reduced.”
Taqa executive officer and head of energy solutions, Saif Al Sayari (pictured), said that Taqa has completed the feasibility study for the power plant, the commissioning of which will also help reduce carbondioxide (CO2) emission considerably.
The plant will generate power from plastic, paper and house waste, but won’t include demolition waste, he added.
“Within the next two months, we will be selecting contractors who will be invited to take part in the tendering process,” Al Sayari noted.
The Taqa executive said it would take two years to complete the power project and the proposed plant would be operational by 2016-2017.
