ABOUT THE PROJECT
Barwon Water's Colac Water Reclamation Plant has received their 2G Agenitor 408 Biogas unit which will use organic waste to produce electricity.
Using high strength organic waste from the Australian Lamb Company and Bulla Dairy Foods, enough electricity will be produced equivalent to powering more than 1000 homes. This will allow Colac Water Reclamation Plant to be taken off the grid and share energy back to the Australian Lamb Company as hot water.
Location: Colac, VIC
Client: Barwon Water
• 2G Agenitor 408 Biogas in Container with Gas Treatment
This project will also see additional benefits such as a reduction in waste going to landfill, boosting Victoria’s renewable energy capacity, driving down energy prices and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in order to take a huge leap forward to the Victorian Government’s water plan to achieve a target of net-zero emissions by 2050.
Barwon Water is well on their journey to adapting to climate change and ensuring that long-term environmentally conscious energy solutions are utilised.
- Expected to generate enough energy to power more than 1000 homes
- Enough energy generated to offset the grid 100%
- Boost Victoria’s renewable energy capacity
