The Alberta Utilities Commission is out for comment until June 13 on an application by Aquatera Utilities Inc. to construct and operate a 2.85-MW landfill gas and natural gas power plant at Aquatera’s Waste and Water Treatment plants.
These plants are located within the city of Grande Prairie. The proposed power plant will house two 1,425 kW, 4,160 V, dual-fuel (landfill gas/natural gas) generators, with space provisions for the addition of a third 1,425 kW generator, which is planned to be installed in 2030.
The generators will be capable of operating by themselves, in parallel, or in cogeneration with the power grid. This plant will replace the two existing diesel emergency generators, which are currently being used as back-up generators for the larger plant site.
Any power generated in excess of larger plant site needs will be exported into the Alberta Electric grid, which serves other Aquatera sites and the City of Grande Prairie. Waste heat from the plant operations will be recycled and utilized to supply heat to the larger plant site facilities.
