Xy Projects, a fast growing, privately Australian owned engineering consultancy, has recently completed an agreement to provide design development services of complete small (5MW-30MW) “Waste to Energy” power generation plants for Brisbane based EESTech. EESTech is an American corporation promoting economical and environmentally sustainable technologies to the mining and infrastructure industry.
This business association marks a pivotal point for both companies in their respective growth paths and comes after months of opportunity development and collaborative discussions.
Xy Projects will provide the overall engineering management and multi-disciplinary engineering design of all aspects of EESTech’s waste to energy power plants, in conjunction with specialist consultants and key vendors.
EESTech’s power plant technology, the Hybrid Coal Gas Turbine (HCGT), utilises coal mining waste, ventilated air methane and other environmental waste to generate power for mining and processing operations. The HCGT is also well suited for application in remote and small communities that are without a dependable power supply.
In the current climate, where the cost of carbon will increasingly be an issue, the HCGT power stations present a very short pay-back period and long term benefit.
“Xy Projects are proud to be associated with and support the promising new technologies that EESTech has spent over a decade in research and development,” Xy Projects’ managing director Amos Chew said, “I see our future inevitably linked to that of our natural environment, and developments such as the HCGT power stations typify that belief. This places us securely for our future where we continue to provide engineering services to Metals and Minerals processing and materials handling plants, while developing a strong presence in the Utilities and Infrastructure sector.”
“We’re going to have fun, guys,” EESTech’s Chairman and CEO Murray Bailey said, “YeeeeeHaaaaa!”
