LOCATION: Durham, New Hampshire
SIZE & TECHNOLOGY: 7.9 MW Turbine/HRSG duct-Landfill gas/natural gas blend
FIRM ROLE: Engineering and Design
UNH PROCESS LANDFILL GAS PROJECT
Waldron Engineering was contracted by EMCOR to design the installation of a landfill gas to energy system for the existing Siemens Gas Turbine and a HRSG duct-burner for the University of New Hampshire. Waldron was the Engineer of Record for the process landfill gas (PLG) project and assist-ed with work on the aspects of the landfill gas conditioning. The landfill gas is conditioned and blended with natural gas for the operation of the cogeneration facility. Waldron was responsible for providing a construction package that defined the work for the Mechanical, Civil, Electrical and Controls portions of the work. The construction specifications for the work were provided as part of the package. All the specs were coordinated with the existing UNH equipment and materials to maintain the consistency of the equipment in the plant.
The UNH Cogeneration Plant consists of a 7.9-megawatt dual-fuel combustion generator train, including a HRSG (heat recovery steam generator) with a duct burner that produces 100,000 pounds of steam per hour and a 1,200-ton chilled water plant.
