Climate change and a rising population mean that there is an urgent demand for clean energy solutions. For over 100 years, Binnies has been a global leader in the development of water infrastructure projects and creating innovative and sustainable energy from waste solutions that reduce carbon footprints. We bring specialist expertise in the areas of waste to energy, the use of biosolids and solar and hydropower.
We design and build sustainable wastewater treatment facilities around the globe; most of the larger municipal facilities include sludge digestion for stabilising solid residuals. The biogas produced is used to generate electricity.
In Singapore, we are currently providing multidisciplinary consultancy services (civil and structural engineering; mechanical and electrical engineering; and quantity surveying) for the development of an integrated waste management facility.
The IWMF will have four plants – a 5800-t/d waste to energy facility, a 250-t/d material recovery facility, a 400-t/d food waste treatment facility, and an 800-t/d sludge incineration facility – to process Singapore’s incinerable waste, household recyclables, food waste and dewatered sludge from the co-located Tuas water reclamation plant.
In Manchester, UK, we completed the design, procurement and construction of the new Davyhulme anaerobic digestion facility at one of Europe’s largest wastewater treatment facilities. The introduction of Cambi thermal hydrolysis enables the plant to produce more renewable energy and a soil fertiliser.
We have completed a feasibility study for the installation of floating solar farms at 17 reservoirs for the Water Supplies Department in Hong Kong. Apart from harvesting renewable energy from the sun, other benefits of installing such systems over water surfaces can also be realised.
Binnies has also acted as a third-party inspector for Longtan Hydropower Development Co. Ltd to provide international standard expert advice on the design and construction of the $4.2 billion Longtan Hydropower Project. In the north-western Guangxi Province in China, the hydropower development of 6300-MW capacity is one of the world’s largest roller-compacted concrete dams at 192 m in height and with a 761 m crest length. The dam was designed to provide power generation, help flood control, improve conditions for shipping, and combat salt tide that has plagued water use in cities along the Pearl River Delta.
