Nineteen World Health Organisation containerised incinerators are now en-route to Ethiopia.
A few weeks ago we received an order for nineteen Surefire TS40 waste incinerators from the World Health Organisation (WHO). The challenge was that they were to be supplied to nineteen different locations scattered around some of the most remote regions of Ethiopia. This week we are pleased to report that all nineteen incinerators have now been dispatched from our factory in Hyde, near Manchester, England by road and sea and they are expected to reach their far-flung destinations in about a month’s time.
The main stipulation made by the WHO was that because each of the incinerators was destined for use by remote clinics and small hospitals often located in extreme climates and difficult to reach outlying areas of the country, they had to be fully self-contained and simple to set up and operate. Above all the incinerators had to be ultra-reliable in operation and they had to comply with all the relevant safety and environmental regulations.
The solution we came up with was to manufacture them as containerised incinerators. In other words we customised the design of our standard TS40 incinerator so that not only did it meet all the specifications demanded by the WHO, but most importantly it could be securely housed in a modified ISO shipping container meaning that the container itself became in effect a self-contained ‘incineration station’.
These specially designed Surefire TS40 waste incinerators are ideally suited for the disposal of general, medical and animal waste, with a highly efficient, high-pressure primary combustion system linked to a built-in secondary chamber designed to ensure that there are no undue waste deposits to remove or harmful emissions to the atmosphere.
In order to ensure maximum simplicity of installation on site, every one of the nineteen containerised incinerators was pre-fired, fully tested and certified in our workshops. With everything required also packed within the container itself the only assembly work required on arrival at its destination was for the 5 metre high stainless steel chimney to be fitted and positioned so that it extended through the exit hole that we had already cut into the roof of the container. All the electrical systems were also pre-installed and only required connecting to the local power supply to become fully operational. Also provided in the container was a diesel fuel tank ready configured for easy connection to the incinerator itself.
In other words each of the containerised incinerators was prepared and ready to go into operation within a matter of just a few hours of arriving on site.
Designing and manufacturing the units as containerised incinerators has solved a huge problem for the WHO and it means there will be much greater efficiency in the waste disposal operations at all these sites.
