Renewable Energy Generator - Beenyup Wastewater Treatment Plant

Building a renewable energy generator to reduce carbon emissions.

back to current projects

Project goal:

To produce renewable energy to supply the needs of the Stage 2 Advanced Water Recycling Plant, helping reduce our carbon emissions.

Status:

In construction

Delivery Date:

January 2019 – November 2019

What’s happening?

We've commenced work on a Renewable Energy Generator at the Beenyup Wastewater Treatment Plant in Craigie, helping to reduce our carbon emissions by more than 10,000 tonnes per year.

The generator will use biogas, a by-product from the wastewater treatment process, to produce renewable energy to supply the needs of the Stage 2 Advanced Water Recycling Plant which forms part of the expansion of the Groundwater Replenishment Scheme.

This work will comprise construction of two engines, a biogas pre-treatment system, a heat recovery system and integration works at the Beenyup Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Where is this happening?

This work is close to the freeway on the Beenyup Wastewater Treatment Plant site, away from residential development. Noise from construction is expected to be minimal.

When is this happening?

Commissioning the Renewable Energy Generator will be completed by November 2019. Work hours will be 7am to 5pm weekdays. During February and March 2019, work will also be undertaken from 7am to 11.30am on Saturdays.
