Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau wins JV-contract to extend Rothensee waste-to-energy plant

Frankfurt, 28. September 2021 – Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau AG has been awarded the contract to build the extended shell of the third block for thermal waste utilisation at the Rothensee waste-to-energy plant in Magdeburg in Germany. The client is Müllheizkraftwerk Rothensee GmbH. The contract value is €30 million (of which 50 per cent for Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau).

The project will be delivered by consortium Arge MHKW Rothensee, formed by Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau AG, Northern Division, and Matthäi. The waste inceneration plant Rothensee is operational since 2005 and located just outside the city of Magdeburg (the capital of Saxony-Anhalt in east-central Germany; it lies along the Elbe River, southwest of Berlin). Currently, MHKW Rothensee can convert approximately 650,000 of household waste into electricity and district heating every year.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Blaschko, CEO Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau AG says: ‘We are pleased to make a further contribution to the construction of the MHKW Rothenberg with this order and to continue the good cooperation with our long-standing client.’

Construction will start in October 2021 and completion will be in spring 2024. Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau also built the first two blocks of the Rothensee plant between 2002 and 2007.
