Cache Creek Landfill Gas Utilization Project

Cache Creek Landfill Gas Utilization Project / Cache Creek

Western Pacific Enterprises GP was contracted in August of 2014 as the primary electrical contractor to install a 4.5MW 4160 volt power generating facility located in Cache Creek, BC for Wastech Management Services. The total power created by all 3 generators is synchronized and stepped up to 25 kV via a 6 megawatt 4160 V to 25 kV transformer. The power is then transferred onto the BC Hydro grid and sold via an overhead power line. The facility has the capacity to install (1) additional 1.5 megawatt 4160V generator at a later date, bringing the total production capacity to 6 megawatts, enough to power approximately 6000 homes. Project highlights include: - Providing a partial design/build installation for the fast track completion - Installation (3) 1.5 megawatt customer supplied Finning methane fueled power generators controlled by a high voltage switchgear building - A Postiron communication line was installed to provide data to BC Hydro and Wastech
