WtE Ferrybridge 1

In 2013, a new waste-to-energy plant has been erected in the heart of Great-Britain, realising thus the 10th plant fitted with STAG systems and components on British soil. Based on the successful cooperation of the renowned Hitachi Zosen Inova company and STAG, we were able to install about one hundred furnace lines.


For the Ferrybridge project, STAG was again in charge of the engineering, supply and commissioning of the handling of bulk material pro-duced in the the boiler ash removal an flue gas cleaning. The approach of combining mechanical and pneumatic conveying technology makes STAG an ideal partner.


All components and systems undergo regular inspection and maintenance carried out by a STAG service team, thus ensuring an optimum operational safety and availability of the plant.

Appropriate Topics
Push Floor
  • The push floor is particularly well suited for poor flowing bulk products or even pasty substances such as sewage sludge.

WtE Vantaa

In 2014, a new waste-to-energy power plant equipped with two lines was built in Vantaa, Finland. The two general contractors for boilers and flue gas cleaning opted for conveying technology made by STAG.

Turn Slide Valve DVP

The double-sided sealing turn slide valve has been especially designed for pneumatic conveying as part of the STAG pressure conveying vessel technology. No other system can satisfy the high demands of this application.
