AVR - Steam Line & DH Exchange Station



AVR, originally Afvalverwerking Rijnmond




Upstream oil and gas

Associated capabilities


During the processing of waste, heat is produced. AVR wanted to maximize the use of the heat by providing steam to the neighboring process installations, and district heating to large parts of Rotterdam. Therefore two projects were initiated. One to build a steam line, with condensate return line, from the incinerator plant over a pipe bridge to the neighbors. The second to erect a steam/water heat exchange station with outgoing water lines to the city for district heating.


The basic engineering was performed by client. For the steam line Stork purchased the required materials and provided all mechanical/piping and E&I works, including the required subcontracted services. For the district heating Stork also performed detail engineering and construction services for the mechanical/piping, including erection of equipment and design and construction of the pipe bridges.


The result of these projects were an increased overall energy efficiency and improved revenues of the incinerator facilities of AVR Rozenburg. The timely delivery of the district heating exchange station and pipelines was essential to meet the demand of the upcoming winter season. Both projects were completed without any LTI.
