Landfill-Gas-to-Energy (LFGTE) Plants
EPC Contractor: DCO Energy | Mays Landing, NY
PIDC performed as the owner’s project manager for the engineering, permitting and construction of two of the nation’s largest combined cycle landfill-gas-to-energy (LFGTE) plants. Located in California (37.5 MW) and Rhode Island (32 MW), the combined installation cost of the facilities exceeded $250 million.
These electric generation plants consist of combustion turbine generator sets equipped with turbine inlet chilling, heat-recovery steam generators, and post-combustion emissions control systems. The steam produced is fed to the steam turbine generator sets. The electricity generated is delivered to the local transmission system.
Since LFGTE is a leading alternative energy technology for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the projects received a stimulus grant from the US Department of Energy (DOE) under the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA). DOE grants are issued to promote increased use of energy efficient technologies in industry. They are part of the wider ARRA mission to reduce overall energy use, mitigate carbon pollution, create jobs and cut costs for American businesses.
