Dyess Air Force Base
Waste to Energy Gasification Project
HGA worked with Siemens Building Technologies to develop both conventional and renewable electric power production, integrating two components under one interface with the electric utility. The two components are controlled to protect the facilities they serve, the generating equipment and the stability of the distribution network.
In addition to delivering 17 MW of power, HGA's electrical design maximizes both present and future use of renewable energy fuels. Five diesel generators capable of producing 2.2 MW each can be fueled with either conventional diesel fuel or biodiesel. The site also hosts a waste-to-energy facility that includes a waste transfer station that converts waste to usable electricity.
The Air Force now uses this project as their model for future cogeneration projects.
