COWI in North America has been awarded a contract for the High-Level Design and Construction Supervision Consulting Services of a Waste to Energy Facility at the Port of Bridgetown, Barbados.
Global engineering consultancy COWI will carry out the preparation of the high- level design and functional specifications and at a later date undertake construction supervision for the implementation of the waste-to-energy facility through an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract.
BPI has received financing from the IDB Invest to construct this new Waste to Energy Facility.
The new facility, which will replace the port’s existing incinerator, will use less energy and reduce pollutant emissions and consists of a wet-dry incinerator and a steam rankine cycle turbine.
Kasper Frohlich, Business Development Director, COWI in north America, said: “This renewable project can pave the way for other projects of similar nature on islands worldwide, with a huge potential in the Caribbean region and perhaps even for carbon capture features being one of our priorities. I’m happy to export our track record to this region and building local relationships can at the same time open the doors for other assignments for the port and utility, such as marine and terminal projects.”
