MPA Engineering Completes Electrical Installation for Yarra Valley Water

In early 2017 MPA Engineering completed the electrical installation (including design and manufacture of LV switchboards) and commissioning for the Yarra Valley Water Biogas plant at Wollert, north of Melbourne.  The facility, owned by Victoria’s largest water utility,  is capable of generating 1MW of power 24 hours a day.

About 100 tonnes of waste will be trucked to the facility from markets and food manufacturing operations each day and the produced biogas will be used to generate electricity. The generated power will be used to run the local water treatment facility and any surplus will be exported to the electricity grid.

The Yarra Valley Water biogas plant was the winner of the AD (Anaerobic Digestion) and Biogas Industry Award 2017 (held in the UK) for Best International Commercial Plant.
