Launch of new
Phuket incinerator misfires
PHUKET: The long-awaited second
incinerator at the Phuket City
Municipality facility in Saphan Hin
failed to fire correctly during a trial
burn this month, dousing the surrounding
neighborhood in a foul stench.
The disconcerting odor sparked a stream
of complaints from local residents and
from families visiting the popular
recreational park nearby.
¡°We had to move to solve the problem
immediately,¡± said Tawatchai Thongmung,
the Chief Administrative Officer (Palad)
at Phuket City Municipality.
Operations staff immediately shut the
burner down, resulting in all trash
intended to arrive at the new
incinerator being redirected to the
growing landfill located behind the
The cause of the misfire was attributed
to an electrical fault.
¡°Not only was there the bad smell, but
there was also smoke,¡± said Darawan
Naknakorn, 26, who exercises regularly
at Saphan Hin Park.
¡°Now things are better, but I still hope
the people involved in solving the
problem are able to do so quickly and
prevent any further issues,¡± she told
the Phuket Gazette.
Mr Tawatchai explained that, at the time
of the misfire, Phuket was caught in a
low-pressure system, which brought heavy
rains for over a week.
The dense, low cloud cover at the time
trapped the foul odor close to ground,
exacerbating the problem for people in
the area, he said.
Pressure is building for the
municipality to get the new burner
online, Mr Tawatchai explained.
¡°The old incinerator is no longer
capable of running at full capacity and
it has a problem with its ventilation
system, so we cannot use it to dispose
of all the trash,¡± he told the Gazette.
¡°We currently dispose of 500 tons of
trash a day by dumping it in the
landfill. We have enough space in the
landfill for the trash until the new
incinerator is ready for operation,
which I believe will be no later than
the end of May,¡± he said.
The new incinerator, when up and
running, is expected to dispose of up to
700 tons of trash per day, allowing
Phuket Municipality to burn off
additional trash that is currently
piling up in the landfill.
