JEC Puts Waste-to-Energy into Action at Hong Kong’s Largest Landfill Gas Power Generation Project

To support the Government’s carbon reduction policies to combat climate change and transform Hong Kong into a smarter and greener city, JEC was recently awarded a contract from CLP Power Hong Kong Limited for Hong Kong’s largest landfill gas (LFG) power generation project in the West New Territories Landfill (WENT Landfill). JEC will build and operate a facility to convert waste LFG to electrical energy. It will generate 10MW of electricity at full capacity. JEC will also set up supervisory control and data acquisition system for remote operation control of the facility from CLP Black Point power station located at 3km away.

Located at Nim Wan in Tuen Mun, WENT Landfill is Hong Kong’s largest landfill where some of the LFG is currently used to generate electricity for onsite facilities and waste water treatment. After the generator site is established, un-utilised LFG can be put to good use for powering over 17,000 four-person households per year. The project will be completed in December this year.
