Biogas gensets for Delhi waste water treatment plant

A new waste water treatment plant in Delhi, India is set to process up to 91 million litres of waste water daily features three biogas-fired gensets.

Developers of the Nilothi plant (pictured) placed an order for three Caterpillar Energy Solutions/MWM TCG 2020 V16 series units via MWM’s Indian distributor, Green Power International Pvt Ltd. Run on biogas derived from digestion of the sewage sludge, the system can supply autonomous power of approximately 4.5 MWe as well as thermal energy in the form of hot water for digester heating with overall efficiency rates of up to 85%, the company says.

The order also includes a 10-year contract until 2024 for the maintenance and servicing.

‘This is the third sewage gas plant we install in India using MWM gensets, a segment which is growing considerably and where we see a high potential in the next years, as environmental friendly infrastructure investments continue growing,’ said Sanjeev Puri, Managing Director of Green Power International.
