IPS was contracted by Energy Developments, Inc. (EDI) to perform engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for the Power Station Expansion Project at EDI’s Carbon Limestone power station. This station was generating 19.1 MW of electricity while receiving 9,600 SCFM of landfill gas. IPS installed two CAT 3520 generator sets to provide an additional 3.2 MW of power generation. These generators were installed in Enercon enclosures, which have their own electrical switchgear room as part of the enclosure system. Additional equipment furnished and installed by IPS includes two Smithco radiators and two ABB step-up transformers. LFG for the new engines is supplied from the existing underground fuel rail header and power generated by the new engines is supplied to the existing 69 KVA substation through the loop transformer system.
The Carbon Limestone Landfill accepts non-hazardous industrial solid wastes and sludges, construction and demolition debris, and household refuse. Wastes accepted by the facility require approvals prior to disposal, and include: processed medical waste, oils, and special wastes.
