Gold Coast Water’s Coombabah Wastewater Treatment Plant is utilising the 550kW 2G Avus 500plus to generate renewable energy which reduces plant energy consumption, lowers operational costs and contributes to the council’s environmental targets.
Approximately 4000mWh of renewable electricity produced
Existing digesters producing biogas power the 2G Avus500plus
Heat is used to ensure the digester system remains functioning at optimal efficiency
2G Avus500plus produces electricity to offset facility electrical consumption
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 uses its existing digesters currently producing biogas to power the 2G Avus500plus Cogeneration system. The Avus500plus produces electricity to offset the facility electrical consumption, and heat is then 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 produces approximately 4,000MWh of renewable electricity annually and is a major contributor to City of Gold Coast's environmental targets.
