Belleville Wastewater Treatment Facility – Biogas CHP
The Belleville Wastewater Treatment Facility is a good example of an organization that can utilize CHP. In their process, heat and electricity are used in relatively large quantities to treat waste water from the inhabitants of Belleville. The electrical and thermal loads are relatively constant and continuous throughout a 24-hour period, allowing the CHP unit to operate as a base-load supply to the water treatment process.
The process of breaking down waste at the facility also produces a methane gas. This methane gas is currently utilized in the facility’s boilers to make thermal energy and some is flared to the atmosphere. This project will use the methane gas produced at the facility, along with pipeline natural gas, in the CHP unit eliminating the need to flare to the atmosphere.
This project is a 370kW CHP installation utilizing one (1) Tedom reciprocating engine that combusts a mixture of biogas and natural gas. It is located outside, adjacent to the electrical room. The commissioning has begun on the installation and is due to be complete by May 2021.
Capreit – 500 Murray Ross Parkway, Toronto
This project is a 260kW dual mode CHP installation utilizing four (4) Capstone Microturbines located in the penthouse boiler room of a 20 storey apartment building. The project is now complete and fully commissioned. This CHP installation provides heat for the domestic hot water and the building heating system as well as displacing 260kW of electricity from the building’s utility load.
The system provides year round energy savings for our customer as well as acting as a Life Safety generator for the residents of the building.
Hama Investments - 170 Lees Avenue, Ottawa
This project is a 195kW dual mode CHP installation utilizing three (3) Capstone Microturbine located in the parking garage of a 20 storey apartment building. The construction of the project is complete and fully commissioned. This project came to fruition because of a need, by the building owner, to replace an aging and non functioning emergency backup generator for the building’s Life Safety system. This building has a boiler system for domestic hot water and is electrically heated.
The installation provides heat for the domestic hot water and displaces most of the electricity normally purchased from the local electricity utility which along with the heat recovery, translates into substantial energy savings to our customer.
