Clarke Energy ahs been contracted to construct and design the cogeneration plant aspect to a major upgrade of Adelaide’s Bolivar waste treatment plant in Australia.
The South Australian Government has approved the $25.8 million project for South Australia Water, a major upgrade.
The project involves the installation of onsite power generation fuelled with the digester gas produced during the treatment plant process.
Clarke Energy Australia will use GE Jenbacher gas engines and fully integrate the electricity generated into the existing electrical infrastructure.
Due to be commissioned next year, once completed the plant will generate up to 85 per cent of the plant’s annual electricity demand.
