King & Queen Plant a Stop on the Virginia Economic Development Partnership’s Fall 2008 Virginia Energy Media Tour
October 28, 2008
King & Queen County, Virginia
INGENCO’s 12 MW generating plant located at Allied Waste’s King & Queen County landfill was a stop on the Virginia Economic Development Partnership’s (VEDP) Fall 2008 Virginia Energy Media Tour. Journalists, VEDP staff and Virginia’s senior advisor for energy policy and chair of Governor Tim Kaine’s Energy Policy Advisory Council were in attendance.
The four day statewide tour, which included visits to Virginia’s Bio Diesel Refinery in West Point, Dominion Power’s North Anna Power Station in Mineral and a presentation by Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University on “The Future of Energy in Virginia” at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center, showcased the Commonwealth’s energy assets as well as VEDP’s corporate partners.
INGENCO’s Brunswick Plant’s Expansion Reaches Commercial Operations
July 31, 2008
Brunswick County, Virginia
The expansion of the Brunswick plant to 12 installed MW is now complete, and the plant is now available for expanded operations.
INGENCO Operations installed all of the equipment for the expansion in about two months, and Construction coordinated the final interconnect with Dominion Power.
The nominal output of the plant can now approach 11 MW. Two additional groups of gensets were installed to two transformers, bringing the total engine count to 36. The balance of the infrastructure was already installed from the original build.
INGENCO Project in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania Reaches Commercial Operations
May 19, 2008
Pine Grove, Pennsylvania
On April 29, 2008, INGENCO completed commissioning its two-mile pipeline which supplies landfill gas to the Guilford Mills Company in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania.
This project consists of multiple blower stations and many elevation changes and showcases INGENCO’s in-house design capability. Ultimately, the project will also include a 6 MW generating plant using INGENCO’s proprietary dual-fuelled engine technology. The generating plant will co-generate power and heat, which will also be supplied to Guilford Mills, making this project a model of renewable energy efficiency.
INGENCO’s Brunswick County Plant to be Expanded from 8 MW to 12 MW
March 18, 2008
Brunswick County, Virginia
On February 1, 2008, INGENCO received a permit from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality to expand its Brunswick County plant from 8 MW to 12 MW. The expansion is in response to increased flow of landfill gas at the site. This is the third INGENCO landfill gas to energy plant to be expanded. The Amelia County, Virginia, and Mountain View, Pennsylvania plants were similarly expanded in May 2003 and November 2004, respectively. INGENCO’s highly scalable modular generating plant design provides the lowest incremental generating capacity costs in the industry and is ideally suited for growing landfill gas resources.
