This private company needed to meet east coast compliance requirements for separating organics from landfills and needed assistance converting an abandoned biosolids processing facility into a waste-to-energy hub. Mead & Hunt developed a guaranteed maximum price for the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of the entire facility. After advancing the design, we utilized a fast-track construction schedule that allowed site work to start with the placement of three 59’ diameter, 1.2-million-gallon anaerobic digestion tanks, a feed and buffer tank, and all associated equipment. The recirculation pump and hot water pump skids were prefabricated, tested, and verified by our fabrication division and shipped to the project site. Other equipment was procured from overseas, requiring working across time zones with anaerobic digestion equipment specialists from Germany and Denmark. The biogas will be treated and used in a combined heat and power system that generates electricity and thermal energy at the facility. The hub produces electricity and thermal energy for use at the facility.
