New Energy Corporation has shifted its waste to energy projects into gear by contracting the Australian arm of US-based engineering company Kiewit to handle design and construction.

New Energy is progressing two projects - one in Port Hedland and one in East Rockingham - estimated to cost $184 million and $150 million respectively.

It’s engaged Kiewit to undertake front-end engineering and design, which will lead into the procurement and construction phase.

Both plants will be built to process 200,000 tonnes of waste per year and will include a 72MWT thermal waste to energy plant - generating enough electricity to supply 22,000 homes.

New Energy general manager Jason Pugh said the company undertook a rigorous process to select an appropriate partner.

“Kiewit is a Tier 1 EPC contractor with extensive experience in waste to energy and bioenergy projects and brings world-class expertise and in-house capability to deliver our projects and this gives us great comfort,” Mr Pugh said in a statement.

“This is an exciting stage in our project development and a clear sign that New Energy is the leading player in Australia’s emerging waste to energy market.
