The R.M. Clayton Wastewater Treatment Plant is one of the largest wastewater treatment facilities in the Southeast. It has a permitted capacity of 100 MGD and a current average flow of 70 MGD, including both primary and secondary treatment unit processes. Crowder was contracted to perform this design-build, cogeneration project that provided a means to capture the energy potential in the digester gas and convert it to electrical power and thermal energy. The electrical power provided some offset for the current power usage at the facility. Crowder was responsible for the design, installation and start-up of major project elements including one biogas-fueled internal combustion gas engine generator, the combined heat and power process to recover thermal energy used in digester operation, and electrical facilities connecting the engine-generator equipment to the electrical power grid.
The scope of work for this project was to construct a power house facility at the Richard B. Russell Hydroelectric Dam for the United States Army Corps of Engineers. The project included the placement of more than 160,000 cubic yards of concrete, structural steel erection, extensive piping, installation of four (4) 75mw turbines, miscellaneous equipment erection, electrical and instrumentation/control systems. Crowder direct hired self-performed the major work, including underground piping and electrical, foundations, concrete, equipment erection, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation/control system.
