POSCO Engineering, a leading builder in Korea, said Friday it has finished installing a boiler drum for its waste-to-power project in Krakow, Poland.

“The event shows the company’s first project in Eastern Europe will be on time,” a company official said. The facility is planned to be completed by December 2015.

The construction arm of POSCO won a $250 million contract to build the waste-to-power plant in 2011.

The plant, which will have two incineration units, will be able to process 680 tons of household waste per day, producing some 95,000 MWh of electricity annually, the company said.
