In 2012 Energy Developments began construction on a Landfill Gas to Energy (LFGTE) Power Station in Collinsville, Alabama – roughly centered between Huntsville, Alabama; Birmingham, Alabama; Chattanooga, Tennessee; and Rome, Georgia.
The LFGTE facility has a generating capacity of 4.8 MW, making it the largest Landfill Gas to Electricity facility in the state of Alabama. Renewable power generated from this facility is sold to the Tennessee Valley Authority under a long-term agreement, and the power is exported through an interconnection with Sand Mountain Electric Cooperative.
IPS was selected by EDI to perform as the General Contractor/Construction Manager for the LFGTE Power Station project. The construction contract also included site improvements of approximately 1/3 acre. Within the site, a pre-engineered metal building was constructed to house the (3) CAT 3520 landfill gas powered generator sets, electrical switchgear, and station office area. The balance of the site is consumed by the transformer yard, HVAC units, engine radiators, engine exhaust structure, and landfill gas conditioning/compression equipment. IPS selected local contractors for all civil, electrical, and general trades work. IPS self-performed industrial piping, rigging, and equipment setting for the project.
