Construction of Energy-from-Waste Plant in Vinča, Serbia

In order to solve a decades long environmental problem related to the Belgrade’s municipal waste landfill, located in Vinca, at the outskirts of the Serbian capital, the City of Belgrade has signed a 25 yeas long Private-Public-Partnership agreement with international consortium Suez Groupe&ITOCHU Corporation for the construction of the first Energy-from-Waste plant in Serbia. The plant will have the capacity to process two thirds of the total municipal waste generated in the City of Belgrade, producing 30 MW of electricity and 56.5 MW of heat planned to be fed into the Belgrade district heating system. Next to the EfW plant, a Landfill Gas Utilization plant will also be built, which will collect landfill gas from the existing and new landfills within the Vinca Waste Management Complex. The landfill gas utilization plant will have an installed power capacity of 3 MW and will be connected to the EfW plant, where thermal energy from gas engines will be utilized.

With Constructions Industrielles de la Mediterranee (CNIM) as a selected EPC contractor, Energoprojekt ENTEL is in charge of developing design documentation in line with local and European regulations, as well as for handling the entire permitting process that will result in the provision of the Use Permit for the future plant.
