July 14 — The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County, Fla., recently awarded a consortium of three contractors a $ 667 million design-build contract for a 3,000-ton-per-day mass waste-to-energy facility.
The three contractors selected are Cambridge, Mass.-based CDM, Birmingham, Ala.-based BE&K Construction Co. LLC and Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group Inc. in Barberton, Ohio.
The facility will produce 95-gross megawatts of renewable energy and reduce the amount of waste sent to the authority´s landfill. The project also includes a visitor center, which will be used for educational purposes.
Sustainability features will include zero wastewater discharge, photovoltaic solar panels and rainwater harvesting. The Solid Waste Authority said the facility is designed to have the cleanest air emissions of any waste-to-energy plant built in the U.S.
The project is in the design phase, with construction scheduled to begin next spring and be completed in 2015. It is anticipated that the project will employ more than 900 people during construction and create more than 300 full-time construction jobs.
