Northern Ireland company Kiverco was appointed as a specialist plant provider by the UAE based company Dulsco to supply a material recovery facility (MRF) plant, supporting Dulsco’s vision to transform its waste into reusable and recycled products
Kiverco, a specialist in engineering and manufacturing, was selected by Dulsco, an integrated solutions provider and the official waste management partner for Expo 2020 Dubai, to design, manufacture, install and commission a complete turnkey solution to help divert waste from landfill. The state-of-the-art Material Recovery Facility in Dubai, located at Ras Al Khor, is a recycling processing plant with a capacity of 80,000 tonnes per year and forms a key component of the company’s comprehensive environmental solutions offering.
This project, showcasing Kiverco’s engineering and manufacturing credentials to the world, has helped the company - a leader in the design, build and installation of recycling solutions globally - grow their overseas business by more than 600 per cent in the past year alone.
Waste to Resource
While incorporating partner component technologies, some 90% of Dulsco’s Dubai plant was manufactured at Kiverco’s 36,000 sq ft headquarters and factory in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.
The waste separation plant is capable of sorting 240 tonnes of multiple waste streams per day. Waste is sorted into different types of dry mixed recycling based on material type before going through various processes, depending on the type of waste. For example, oversized elements are separated from the rest of the feedstock, with the remainder being segregated into different fractions and undersized materials. Product material then runs through a further separation process to recover metals.
David Stockton, CEO of Dulsco, commented, “At Dulsco, we pride ourselves on only working with the best. As this was a vitally important project for us, it required the right contracting partner. Kiverco has a stellar reputation for the design and build of these types of projects. That, coupled with their excellent support and customer service, made them the perfect choice for helping us achieve operational excellence.”
Dulsco’s Environmental Solutions span the waste services domain, from community and industrial waste collection to recycling, medical and hazardous waste management. With sustainability at the core of its operations, the company continues to invest in different waste management and treatment solutions.
Gavin McQuillan, commercial director, Dulsco, explained, “By designing and building this recycling solution, Kiverco has provided great support to Dulsco. The establishment of this new plant is perfectly aligned with our mission of creating more sustainable communities and emphasises our continued commitment towards creating a circular economy.”
Con Gallagher, head of global sales, Kiverco, concluded, “We are delighted to have worked with Dulsco to supply this recycling solution and we are honoured to be associated with this terrific recycling and sustainability initiative.
“The ambition of this project for Dulsco and the region, in general, is testament to the company’s foresight. Our design and manufacturing capabilities demonstrated in this recycling solution and the dedicated work of our install people during the pandemic is testament to the great team of people we have here at Kiverco.”
