Covanta expands Florida waste-to-energy facility
Covanta Energy Corporation has received authorization from Hillsborough County to commence design and construction of a 50 percent capacity expansion of the Hillsborough County, Florida Solid Waste-to-Energy Facility located near Brandon, Florida.
The 600 ton per day (TPD) capacity expansion to the existing County-owned 1,200 TPD waste-to-energy facility will be built and operated by Covanta Hillsborough, Inc., an operating subsidiary of Covanta Energy Corporation.
Covanta will oversee the design, construction and start-up of the expansion.
Under the terms of the extension operations and management agreement, Covanta will operate both the expansion and the original facility, which Covanta has been operating since 1987, for another 20 years.
The facility serves as an integral component of the comprehensive solid waste management plan of Hillsborough Country.
Covanta will operate and maintain the expanded facility though 2027 to deliver County residents with environmentally-sound waste disposal and clean, renewable energy.
