Automated Refuse Handling Crane Systems

Olmsted County, MN

Power and Utilities | Crane Systems | Power & Motion Technology | by Lynn Bostrom | Jan 03, 2010


Olmsted County, MN, takes going green to the next level with its waste-to-energy facility that burns non-recyclable refuse to produce energy. Since opening in 1987, the waste-to-energy plant has processed over 1 million tons of garbage into highpressure steam and electrical energy used by nearby government buildings and sold to the power grid.

Two automated refuse handling bridge cranes operate together on the same runway. The cranes are used to mix garbage in a large pit and feed three furnace hoppers. The end product of this facility is power generation. The system includes collision between cranes and operator pulpit controls for manual operation.
