Durham York Energy-From-Waste Facility

Richmond Hill, ON

Client:  Regional Municipality of Durham
Delivery Model: Design-Bid-Build
Prime Consultant: Sigma Energy Solutions Inc.
Value:  $113.7 million
Completion: June 2015


Courtice Power Partners (CPP), a 50/50 Joint Venture of Kenaidan and Barton Malow, constructed this renewable energy-from-waste facility for the Regions of Durham and York. The 140,000 tonne-per-year facility processes municipal household waste. The facility will be capable of producing enough power for approximately 10,000 homes.

In the future, steam generated from the plant process could be utilized for district heating at an industrial park adjacent to the facility. The facility also recovers ferrous and non-ferrous metals for recycling. The emissions control technology at the facility establishes it as one of the cleanest energy-from-waste facilities in the world.

CPP was responsible to install and start up all of the equipment, which included: the 180 ft stack with air pollution control equipment, turbine, boiler, garbage-waste handling claw, conveyor gallery for ash residue, scale house and scales, switchgear transformer, air cooling condenser and water tank and pump house
