Rotterdam Engineering Industrie

Stedin constructed a steam network in the Botlek area in the port of Rotterdam connecting AVR and EKC. The waste processor AVR creates energy in the form of the steam byproduct. This steam is transported to the EKC chemical plant. The connection was designed to allow multiple industrial clients to connect to the steam network which functions as a common carrier. By providing steam to industrial clients in the Botlek area a significant reduction in carbon dioxide emission and power demand is realised contributing to the sustainability goals of the municipality of Rotterdam. Stedin asked us to assist in the routing and basic design of the steam pipe system. In addition we provide support in transferring the basic design into the contracting phase of the project.
