South Australian water authority SA Water has asked thermal energy storage company 1414 Degrees to have its GAS-TESS syetsm installed at Adelaide’s Glenelg Wastewater Treatment Plant operational by the end of October..
This is in preparation for for electricity export to the grid as an embedded generator on the National Electricity Market.
The Glenelg plant can generate electricity from gas engines, solar PV and the GAS-TESS but has not been able to export to the grid pending SA Power Networks’approval.
SA Power Networks intends to conduct verification testing and witnessing in November, and in preparation, SA Water requires all generation devices to be integrated into an upgraded plant control system.
1414 Degrees will commence recommissioning its GAS-TESS from 1 October.
Gas-TESS burns untreated biogas produced from processing sewage at high temperatures and stores the energy as heat in molten silicon.
