City of Toledo / Bayview Wastewater Treatment Facility - Toledo, Ohio
The City of Toledo kicked off the first of many green initiative projects with the construction of a system to process landfill and digester gases to generate electricity for use at the Bayview Waste Water Treatment Facility (WWTF).
The power generated from these gases would remove the WWTF from the local power grid, therefore reducing the city’s electric cost up to $3 million a year.
IPS was the mechanical contractor responsible for labor and material to install and connect a 10MW combined cycle power generator. IPS was also responsible for the installation of two Domnick Hunter Systems – one at the landfill station and the other at the co-generation facility that would remove any impurities before using the green gases to generate electricity.
The project involved the installation of a 6MW gas fired turbine, 70 MLBS/HR waste heat boiler, 4MW steam turbine, water cooled condenser, all additional system support equipment such as cooling towers, gas compressor equipment at the landfill and booster gas compressor equipment at the co-generation facility with a gas blending station that provides the option of blending any combination of the two gases along with natural gas for continuous power to the facility.
