AVI is involved in a major project Down Under

In the Australian state of Western Australia, about 40 km south of Perth, a new Energy-from-Waste (EfW) plant is being built by the end of 2023.

AVI is supporting the companies Loibl Förderanlagen GmbH and Hitachi Zosen Inova AG with its automation know-how, in the implementation of the East Rockingham Waste-to-Energy project.

Loibl Förderanlagen GmbH is supplying an automated slag sorting and processing plant. In this plant, the slag produced after the incineration process is crushed to a firmly defined grain size. During this process, ferrous and non-ferrous metals are sorted out. Filtered out metals are used in industry, the processed slag is used in road construction and civil engineering.

With our team, we are supporting Loibl in the planning, project planning and commissioning of the electrical and control technology of the slag processing plant – from the feed bunker to the various sorting areas.

After completion, the plant will process 300,000 tons of waste per year from the surrounding East Mindarie Regional Councils (EMRC) as well as the Cockburn Council, and the generated 28.9 MWe will be fed directly into the power grid.
