Belgrade city manager Goran Vesic said that French Suez is planning to start the construction of waste-to-energy facility and the Vinca landfill in spring 2019. Previously it was announced that the construction will start by the end of this year.
Last October, Suez announced that it has signed an agreement, as a part of a consortium with I-Environment Investments Limited, a subsidiary of Japanese company Itochu, to invest 300 million euros in the construction of waste-to-energy facility in Belgrade. This project will allow local government to close and remediate the Vinca landfill and produce over 80 MW of heat and electricity, all from a renewable source. The waste-to-energy facility will be built by a joint venture of Suez and Itochu, in which both companies have equal shares, and will have an installed electricity capacity of 25 MW and heat capacity of 56 MW, processing some 340,000 tons of waste annually.
