Antony Waste Handling Cell Limited (Antony Waste) has commissioned its waste-to-energy plant and has started supplying power from its plant to Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC).
The company is commencing power supply with an initial capacity of up to 8 MW to cater to two essential PCMC infrastructure assets: the Ravet water pumping station and the Chikali sewage treatment plant. The electricity generated by its waste-to-energy plants serves a dual purpose, contributing to a cleaner environment and ensuring the continuous and uninterrupted operation of these critical facilities.
The company has successfully concluded trial runs, evaluating equipment performance across a range of loads, from 8 MW to 14 MW, utilising a mixture of municipal solid waste obtained within PCMC as the feedstock. The power supply will experience a gradual increase by the close of the financial year, with power sales scaling up to 11.76 MW.
In September 2023, PCMC issued a request for proposal to develop 22 electric vehicle charging stations. The projects will be located at various locations in Maharashtra and will be set up on the basis of build, own, operate model.
