ABOUT THE PROJECT
Gold Coast Water’s Coombabah Wastewater Treatment Plant will utilise the 550kW 2G Avus 500plus to generate renewable energy which will reduce plant energy consumption, lower operational costs and contribute to the council’s environmental targets.
Location: Coombabah Wastewater Treatment Plant
Client: Gold Coast Water
Principal Contractor: Pensar
- 550kW Avus500plus Cogeneration unit in 7.0m x 3.0m x 3.2m Container
- 3 tank Activated Carbon biogas scrubbing system for removal of siloxanes and H2S
- Gas Dehumidification System
Pensar was engaged by the City of Gold Coast to complete the construction and design of the cogeneration plant using EvoET's cogeneration technology.
Coombabah Wastewater Treatment Plant will be using its existing digesters currently producing biogas to power a 2G Avus500plus Cogeneration system. The Avus500plus will produce electricity to offset the facility electrical consumption, and heat will be used to ensure the digester system remains functioning at optimal efficiency.
The 2G solution includes biogas treatment system to dry the biogas, and Active Carbon filtration to remove contaminants in the gas. The system is expected to produce approx 4,000MWh of renewable electricity annually and be a major contributor to City of Gold Coast's environmental targets.
