East Gippsland Water will be replacing their existing generator and heat pumps on site with a 2G 80kW Combined Heat and Power (CHP) solution which will supply almost all of the plants electrical usage with the capacity to export a large amount of electricity to the grid as well as to provide the thermal requirements of the digesters on site.
Meet 100% of the sites thermal requirements
Offset 100% of the sites electrical use (206MWh)
Export 345MWh electricity to the grid
Offset over 550tons of CO2 emissions
In 2018 East Gippsland Water committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, and another accelerated goal of being powered 100% by renewable energy by 2025.
To help achieve this goal, Evo Energy Technologies was contracted to provide a cutting-edge upgrade at the plant, replacing the existing generator and heat pumps with a 2G Agenitor 80kW CHP unit.
The CHP unit will maximise the conversion of biogas into useful energy and will offset over 550 tonnes of CO2 emissions; an immense contribution to East Gippsland Water’s overall zero emissions target.
EvoET’s CHP solution, once operational is expected to offset the entirety of the site’s electrical use (around 206MWh), with the possibility of exporting 345MWh of electricity back to the grid, and meet 100% of the site’s thermal requirements.
Additional benefits will also see optimisation of the metering and maximising the value of the exported power as well as improving the process of the site.
East Gippsland Water are leading the way to a sustainable future and are well on their way to reaching their goal of zero emissions by powering their BWTP off renewable energy.
