6 firms including Arup, Atkins and AECOM shortlisted to design world’s largest waste-to-energy plant

Six firms have been selected to design the world’s largest waste-to-energy plant in Shenzhen, China aiming to manage the city’s population growth.

The competing firms are: Arup, Atkins, AECOM, Gerber Architekten, Schmidt Hammer Lassen in collaboration with Gottlieb Paludan Architects as well as Tanghua Architects.

The Shenzhen East Waste-to-Energy Plant plans to incinerate 5000 tonnes of waste daily and generate an estimated 550 million kWh per year.


A 267,000m2 site has been selected on the outskirts of Shenzhen by the Shenzhen Municipality and the Shenzhen Energy Group, the client behind the project.

The city is looking for a “strong architectural vision” that “will give the city and the local residents an inviting public complex while also providing a platform for public education,” said Schmidt Hammer Lassen in a press release.
