Award for one of the largest orders in the history of the Sutco® company


Bergisch Gladbach/Singapore. Sutco RecyclingTechnik GmbH plant engineering company, based in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany has been awarded of the construction of a sorting system for recyclable materials (MRF) in South East Asia. Sutco received the order for the project from the St. Engineering Marine, Keppel Seghers Engineering Singapore and the China Harbour Singapore Engineering, company consortium which prevailed in a public bidder competition. The Singapore-based NEA ("National Environment Agency"), the national environmental authority of Singapore, is the client for the construction of the IWMF (Integrated Waste Management Facility).

In addition to the planned waste incineration and miscellaneous other installations, the fully automatic sorting system for recyclables (MRF) is part of the total project which will be implemented for this purpose through the newly founded Sutco Singapore by 2023. The fully automatic sorting system is designed for an annual capacity of approx. 80,000 tons and the manufacture of twelve products.

This order is something like a lighthouse for Sutco since it establishes a reference in South-East Asia according to European examples and implements a recovery of recyclables into circulation in addition to an energetic use. With an order volume of more than 25 million euros, the "MRF Singapore" project is also the largest single order in the 35-year history of Sutco RecyclingTechnik GmbH.
