AFRY is the technical partner in a new waste-to-energy project in Thailand


Watsuduphan Thurakit Co. Ltd. (WSPT) has awarded AFRY with Owner’s Engineering services for a waste-to-energy facility in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand. This project contributes to the development of an improved municipal waste management system in the country.

Waste-to-energy (WtE) facilities have become an important method for disposal of municipal solid waste around the world. The new plant will transform municipal waste into energy, thereby aligning with and contributing to Thailand’s sustainability pathway.

The project, commonly known as WSPT 9.9 MW Nakorn Pathom WtE, will consist of the construction of a plant with the capability to process approximately 500-550 tons of waste per day, yielding an output of up to 8 MW for distribution to the national grid.

WSPT is a leading Thai company in the municipal waste management service sector, operating out of Nakorn Pathom province.

AFRY’s role will extend to project management services, engineering review and monitoring of construction, erection, commissioning as well as testing activities.

“The WSPT WtE project represents modern waste disposal and treatment in alignment with Thailand’s municipal waste management strategy. After assisting WSPT during the development phase, we are pleased to continue in the construction phase of this WtE project, which will contribute further to optimising Thailand’s municipal waste management”, says Petteri Härkki, AFRY’s Regional Director for Asia.
