Waste Spectrum Exports Incinerator to Estonia for Poultry Carcass Disposal

ESTONIA - Waste Spectrum Environmental Limited has exported the first Hurikan 1000E Animal-By-Product (ABPR) Incinerator to the Republic of Estonia.

The UK-designed and built, high-capacity incinerator, was commissioned by the Estonian Ministry of Agriculture as a preventative measure in case of animal disease outbreak. The Estonian Ministry approached Mark Comerford, International Business Development Manager for Waste Spectrum, after discussions with their neighboring Latvian Government department, who took delivery of a similar model from the Worcestershire-based manufacturer in 2014.

The Hurikan 1000E is one of a range of incinerators designed and manufactured at Waste Spectrum’s global headquarters in Worcester, England. The Hurikan incineration systems are exceptionally sturdy, highly mobile, high-capacity units designed for use wherever large volumes of waste needs to be incinerated quickly and with biosecurity as a key pre-requisite. The systems are available in a range of colours, either as mobile units or a static option.

The 26-tonne, 14-metre, trailer-mounted Hurikan 1000E has been specifically developed to swiftly and easily incinerate a wide range of material, including animal by-products (ABPR), carcasses resulting from catastrophic events (such as oil spillages, earthquakes and typhoons) or outbreaks of disease (such as avian flu, foot-and-mouth disease, BSE and swine fever), medical waste and contraband (such as illegal drugs). The Hurikan 1000E is the largest capacity EU ABPR 1069/2009 compliant mobile incinerator available, and will incinerate continuously, making use of its unique de-ashing system.

The Hurikan 1000E has a burn rate of up to ‘1,000kg per hour burn rate’ (based on the calorific value of the waste stream) and is the highest of any EU legislation ABPR 1069/2009 compliant model available; for example, a single unit can incinerate in excess of 20,000 chickens a day (with an average weight of 1.2kg). Even faster rates of 3,000kg per hour may be achieved.

With unique mobility and rapid deployment, it can be quickly towed and manoeuvered into awkward sites. The Hurikan 1000E can be operational within two hours, providing for the swift containment of disease, and saving unnecessary labour and waste transport costs.

Waste Spectrum is the current market leader, and has been in business for some 20 years, providing waste disposal solutions on a global basis for animal carcass disposal from the company’s Worcestershire base.

Neil Rossiter, MD of Waste Spectrum, commented: “We are delighted be working with the Estonian Ministry; we now export to 65 countries across the globe and this commission clearly demonstrates the demand for high quality British design and manufacturing”.
