As municipalities grow, so does the demand for water. Today's wastewater treatment facilities have several challenges including stringent environmental standards, rising costs of operations, and outdated power equipment. Enercon helps overcome these challenges by being the trusted partner for the engineering, fabricating, integrating, and servicing of custom power and control products.
With nearly 50 years in the critical power and controls industry, Enercon has become the go-to partner for critical power, standby power, and backup power and controls modernization for wastewater facilities. From sound attuned gen-set enclosures to the latest switchgear control technology, Enercon continues to help treatment centers maintain operational effectiveness. Additionally, our expertise includes assisting biosolids treatment facilities to establish reciprocating engine electrical power generation, allowing for energy cost savings, utility sell back revenue, and environmental impact reductions.
Keeping L.A. Country Quenched and Cool
A single gen-set system provides backup power for the nation’s largest water and power utility.
With all of Los Angeles County - the nation's second-largest metropolitan area by population, to monitor, it was important that the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) had enough power to back up its computer monitoring and air conditioning systems in the event of a utility failure. Not surprisingly the LADWP is considered the largest municipal water and power utility in the U.S. and serves 3.8 million residents and businesses.
Enercon designed and built a single generator set to back up the LADWP central office in downtown L.A. That same central office is responsible for monitoring several remote offices as well, making continuous power that much more important.
Because of the downtown location of the gen-set, the unit had to meet high sound attenuation requirements. Noise emissions were limited to 72 dB(A) by moving the air intakes from the side of the unit to roof-mounted “penthouse” intakes. Intake air is drawn into one penthouse, travels through the switchgear compartment, through the gen-set compartment, and is then sent through the radiator and discharged through the other penthouse.
The package also meets stringent seismic code ratings, as Los Angeles is considered a prime area for potentially severe earthquakes. To address that concern, the gen-set base was made more rigid and all the larger components are spring isolated.
For the times when the power grid has gone down, the generator has kicked in with an average 8-second delay.
Enercon has packaged a 2 MW self-contained standby generator set for the Los Angeles Dept. of Power and Water.
Scope of Project:
16 Cylinders MTU Detroit Diesel Series 4000
Horizontal radiator w/ electric fan cooling
Sound attenuated to 72db(A) @ 23 ft.
Seismic code 4
Modular construction, 14 ga. steel
50 ft. x 12 ft. x 10 ft.
How Methane Powers Profits
Many modern landfills are now earning significant extra profit by turning harnessed methane gas into saleable electric power. This otherwise wasted renewable energy source can power engine-generator sets that produce electricity and increase landfill revenue by selling the power to local utility companies.
Enercon power generation products are custom engineered and designed to help landfills earn more profit by using harnessed landfill gas to fuel engine-generator sets that produce electric power which can then be sold back to the local utility company. The process also removes harmful methane from the environment and can result in additional green energy credits.
Our application specialists and engineering personnel work closely with our landfill customers through the entire design process to meet and exceed the customer's needs and expectations in their landfill gas to electricity projects.
