VIASPACE completes design, engineering for biogas project in Papua New Guinea

July 28, 2015 |

In California, VIASPACE has completed the engineering and design work for a 2 MW biogas power plant in Papua New Guinea for Clean Energy Solutions Pacific (CES), the company said.  The CES project located in Papua New Guinea is to own and operate a biogas power plant and Giant King Grass plantation that delivers reliable, 24/7 electricity to the grid to meet the customer demand profile, under a power purchase agreement from the government electricity company.

The biogas power plant was designed by VIASPACE to meet the daily load profile for the utility customer in Papua New Guinea. The load profile and the comparison of peak load to average load determined the size of the digesters, the amount of biogas storage and the number and size of the engine generators. This information plus the biogas production from Giant King Grass determined the size of the Giant King Grass plantation needed to provide 100% of the power.

VIASPACE Chief Technology Officer Dr. Carl Kukkonen stated, “VIASPACE can provide complete turnkey solutions to customers including the Giant King Grass plantation and the power plant– both for smaller applications of 1 to 3 MW using anaerobic digestion, and larger power plants similar to our project in Nicaragua which can be scaled from its current 12.3 MW down to 10 MW and up to 35 MW.”
