The joint venture formed by FCC Medio Ambiente, Cespa and Gyocivil has awarded Grupo IDP Group the construction project and technical assistance for the construction of the Organic Matter Treatment Plant (PTMO) for the Madrid City Council, in the Valdemingómez Technology Park (Madrid, Spain).
Since 1978, the Valdemingómez Technology Park has concentrated all of Madrid’s urban waste treatment facilities, reaching the more than four thousand tons of waste generated daily in the city.
The new Organic Matter Treatment Plant will occupy an area of 47,376 m2 and will have a treatment capacity of over 102,490 t/year. With modern, automated, and flexible facilities, it will allow individualized treatment of waste, reducing the impact of waste management. It will also comply with the highest environmental and energy efficiency standards with the aim of becoming a benchmark in bio-waste management.
The new Organic Matter Treatment Plant will include the following main areas:
- Reception and feeding area for biological treatment, where digestate from the Las Dehesas Biomethanization Plant and pre-treated FORS are received, if necessary, in closed hoppers with automatic feeding to the mixing equipment.
- Fully automated aerobic biological treatment area, controlled by PLC (process parameters) and equipped with automatic biomass irrigation systems and forced aspiration systems through the material, to obtain the best conditions for the biological process.
- Fully automated refining, storage and dispatch area for compost and rejects.
- Air treatment area, consisting of a treatment system based on biofiltration (biological treatment) with air pre-conditioning by acid treatment and humidification.
- Liquid effluent treatment area, consisting of a treatment plant for the purification of dirty rainwater and process leachate not directly reused in the biological process and designed to obtain an effluent quality suitable for use in the industrial process as treated quality water.
- Area for performing characterizations and analyses.
- Area for R&D and innovation projects.
- Office and General Services Building.
- Parking area and other auxiliary areas.
The IDP Group will carry out technical engineering services to develop the construction project and technical assistance for the new Organic Matter Treatment Plant (PTMO) using the BIM (Building Information Modeling) methodology, which is essential both in the design and in the overall management of the works and which allows to guarantee and meet the highest requirements in terms of scheduling and costs, reducing the time and uncertainty of the construction works.
The IDP Group is positioned as a multidisciplinary engineering company with experience in the development of projects using the BIM methodology in different areas and consolidates its experience in environmental projects, where it is currently developing a considerable number of national and international projects.
