Visakhapatnam WtE to run at full capacity soon

The Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation plans to transfer roughly 260 MT waste per day to its 15 MW waste-to-energy plant from surrounding urban local bodies in Vizianagaram and Srikakulam districts. The move is intended to get the facility up and running.

Dr. G Lakshmisha, commissioner of the GVMC, told The Times of India that the civic body now provides the plant with roughly 940 MT of waste per day generated in Vizag. Against its maximum potential of 15 MW, the facility currently produces 9.9 MW of energy.

The factory requires 1200 MT of garbage each day to run at full capacity.
