WEA - Waste Energy Action
The Fürth thermal waste recycling plant commenced in 1995 and was handed
over in August 1999 after a period of approximately one year commissioning.
Approximately one week after handover an incident occurred when one of the
conversion drums flexible bellow seals ruptured allowing gas to escape. The
plant was shut down shortiy after this incident and has remained shut down ever
The plant was built by Siemans (sic Siemens) as a demonstration showpiece plant and
represents the highest quality equipment, materials and engineering put together
without a high priority on capital cast.
The plant is probably the best quality plant that the writer has ever seen anywhere
in the world.It is very weil engineered and the layout is excellent. The design
has considered maintenance access very well and most of the equipment is
duplicated. The finish of the plant and the quality of the fitments are first class. http://www.wea-energie.de/tl_files/wea/pdf/WK%201%20Brian%20Harding.pdf
