Doosan Škoda Power is supplying a one-core DST-S20 steam turbine for a Polish waste-to-energy plant.

Doosan Škoda Power has entered into a contract to supply a one-core DST-S20 steam turbine with accessories for a Waste-to-energy Plant in Olsztyn, Poland. The new plant, scheduled to be completed in 2023, will be capable of processing up to 110,000 tons of refused derived fuel (RDF). The plant will be covering roughly 30% of the district heating demand in the city by replacing old coal fired sources of heat. In addition, the thermal treatment of the waste makes it possible to reduce the landfill space required.

The Pilsen-based steam turbine manufacturer will work with other members of the Doosan consortium – the EPC partner, along with Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, and Doosan Lentjes, as the technology provider. The end customer of the incinerator is Dobra Energia dla Olsztyna.

“The assembly has a radial outlet with extraction points, while similar types of turbines had an axial outlet in the past. The assembly’s total power will be roughly 12 MW,” says Tomáš Winkler, project manager at Doosan Škoda Power.
