This $10M project will consist of installing and operating a digester gas/natural gas-fueled combined cycle cogeneration system at HTP. The cogeneration system will include the combustion of digester gas (or digester gas/natural gas mixture) in three combustion turbine generators (CTGs) to generate electricity, the recovery of heat to generate steam in three HRSGs, the generation of power from a steam turbine generator train (two STGs), and the extraction of a portion of the steam to meet the steam demand of the digesters.
The proposed project will offer efficient utilization of the digester gas and improve operations for BOS. DGUP will consume all digester gas produced at HTP, address energy needs by generating up to 34 MW of electricity, and provide up to 70,000 lb/hr of 90 psig saturated process steam.
ON-SITE performed Quality Assurance inspection of the critical components such as pipe, switchgear, transformers, motor control centers, pumps, conveyors, pressure vessels, HVAC equipment, valves, and tanks for this project at locations throughout the U.S.
