W. M. Lyles Co. (WML) partnered with Anaergia to Design-Build the Power Generator Project at Victor Valley Wastewater Authority. The project objectives were to operate generators on treated digester gas provided from the Victor Valley Wastewater Authority digesters and then generate enough power to operate all electrical demands for the entire plant. The project consisted of two 800 KW combined heat and power (CHP) Biogas Generators mounted on cast-in-place concrete foundations. Hot water returns and hot water supply (6″) pipelines were installed to the generators to capture heat generated from the generator exhaust and then returned back to the plant for sludge heating usage. Electrical installation included relocation of existing SCE utilities and construction of new SCE utilities to accept the power generation. A low pressure digester gas storage tank was installed for added storage capacity of the digester gas to help equalize gas pressure to the generators. A pillar electric aeration blower was installed to replace an engine driven blower with the goal to eventually replace all the remaining engine driven blowers with electric that would then be powered by the CHP units. Above ground piping and valves, along with pipe insulation, completed the project.
