Doosan Škoda Power has signed a contract to supply a steam turbine for a waste-to-energy power plant in the U.S. This will be Doosan Škoda Power’s first project outside of Europe with Covanta, the waste facility operator. 

Covanta provides environmental services to businesses and communities. The company is partnering with the end customer, Pasco County, to invest in expanding the capacity of a waste-to-energy plant located in Spring Hill, Florida.

The plant expansion increases the total waste processed by 131,500 tons per year.

“This new contract is an important reference for Doosan Škoda Power and a major milestone in entering a complex and dynamic market,” said Josef Talhofer, area sales manager for the North American Doosan Škoda Power division.

Talhofer adds that Doosan is strengthening ties with this longstanding partner: “We continue to demonstrate to Covanta our technical competence, flexibility and willingness to support it beyond Europe.”

For this project, Doosan Škoda Power will supply a standardized single-case turbine DST-G10 with a gross power output of 15 MW together with a generator and auxiliary equipment meeting U.S. standards.
