CASE STUDIES: BERMUDA
Waste to Energy (without mining) has been employed in Bermuda since the Tynes Bay Waste to Energy Facility was commissioned in 1994. The similarities between Bermuda and the Cayman Islands suggest that it would be very worthwhile to look carefully at their experience as part of the decision-making process in the Cayman Islands. As well as Tynes Bay, the Bermuda Waste Management infrastructure includes a Material Recovery Facility, a composting facility, a special wastes and hazardous waste programme, curbside recycling and a marine fill site. They are also faced with a significant landfill remediation programme right in the middle of a highly populated area. The Tynes Bay Waste to Energy Facility employs well proven and reliable moving grate mass burn technology developed by the Swiss company Von Roll Ltd. This is the same technology that Wheelabrator would have employed had the Cayman Islands Government decided to further the negotiations with that firm. DRCL met with the same Waste to Energy technology provider before this firm was engaged by Wheelabrator and determined that a smaller modular mass burn facility, presented in the DRCL backed proposal would serve Cayman better and be more competitive in cost.
