No wastage at the wastewater plant
Clarke Energy’s cogeneration power plant design provides three GE Jenbacher highly electrically efficient dual-fuel gas engines installed inside of the existing power house, each 2.4 megawatts in capacity. The gas engines will operate either solely on digester gas or a blended mix with natural gas during times of low digester gas production.
Once completed, the plant will generate up to 85 per cent of the plant’s annual electricity demand. This means annual electricity savings of $1.3 million with a capital payback period estimated at eight years.
