Project: Halton Landfill Gas Generation Unit Installation

Halton Landfill Gas Plant Installation

Western was hired as part of a design build team to provide the complete installation for all trades of two 1 Mega Watt power generation units at the Halton Region Landfill. The work included the installation of a 5000Amp, 600Volt service and switchgear. As well Western installed and connected all auxiliary gas treatment, instrumentation and communications equipment to condition the gas for use in the generators. The benefits of the project are twofold as not only can the power be exported to the grid, but after combustion the environmental impact of the methane gas (which would normally escape directly to the atmosphere) is substantially reduced.
