WtE Perlen

Based on their long cooperation in the area of conveying systems for thermal waste treatment plants, Hitachi Zosen Inova and STAG have already realised several projects together. In 2015, a completely new waste treatment plant featuring two lines has been put into operation in Perlen (CH). This plant is one of the most modern and innovative installations throughout Europe.


The approach of combining mechanical and pneumatic conveying technology makes STAG an ideal partner.In cooperation with HZI, STAG was responsible of the engineering and supply of the overall mechanical and pneumatic ash removal systems for boiler, electric and fabric filters, including loading silos equipped with a truck loading system, as well as of the overall hydrated lime and hearth furnace coke injection for flue gas treatment. The engineering and supply of the bicarbonate silos, including the equipment, of the bicarbonate mills and their pneumatic transport facility to fabric filters was also carried out by STAG.

Appropriate Topics
Discharge Chain Conveyor

Discharge chain conveyors are installed at bunker outlet points or directly in boiler hoppers. The dimensioning and construction of the large inlet opening require detailed knowledge.
