Los Angeles (LA) Sanitation has chosen Constellation to develop a 27 MW biogas cogeneration plant at its Hyperion treatment plant in the City of Los Angeles, US.

Constellation will operate the plant for ten years and have an option to extend the agreement for five additional years.
Hyperion, which is claimed to be the tenth largest wastewater treatment facilities in the world, generates a class 1 renewable fuel known as digester gas, which will be used as a primary fuel source by the cogeneration facility.

Once operational by the end of 2016, the power plant, which is estimated to cost around $130m, will generate steam and electricity that will power Hyperion’s treatment operations.

L.A. Sanitation COO Traci Minamide said, “This state-of-the-art facility will reduce emissions at the Hyperion plant and secure for our city a new energy source that is reliable, efficient and sustainable.”
