GE to deliver cogeneration gas sets to CHP plant in Wisconsin

GE’s (NYSE: GE) Waukesha gas engines factory manufactured and recently delivered two, 1 MW cogeneration sets for the Forest County Potawatomi Community’s (FCPC) planned biogas combined heat and power (CHP) project in Milwaukee’s Menomonee Valley. The biogas project will convert waste from area food processing operations into renewable energy for the tribal community as well as the local grid.

GE delivered the two Waukesha APG1000 Enginator biogas engines to FCPC on April 13. An anaerobic digester will process the food processor waste to produce biogas that will fuel GE’s Waukesha engines in the CHP plant. The engines are designed specifically to run on biogases that are rich in methane.

The two generator sets will produce a total of 2 MW of renewable electricity. The biogas plant’s electricity will be sold to WE Energies. The Potawatomi Tribe expects the CHP plant to begin operations in April 2013.
