The East Rockingham Waste to Energy project addresses two major challenges in Australia: delivering sustainable and affordable solutions for both electricity generation and waste management.
Australia disposes over 23 million tonnes of waste to landfill every year, with Western Australia having the highest waste generation rate per capita coupled with the lowest recovery rate. The East Rockingham Waste to Energy plant will process up to 330,000 tonnes of residual waste per annum and recover energy to produce 28.9 MW Power.
Owned by John Laing (40%), Masdar/Tribe (40%), ACCIONA Concesiones (10%), and Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) (10%), the project will be the second large-scale Energy from Waste (EfW) facility in Australia, with a large environmental benefit for the country.
