Hyperion Wastewater Treatment Facility

Site

Los Angeles, California

Project

32 MW DIGESTER GAS FIRED COMBINED HEAT & POWER PLANT

Role

Engineering, Construction Management, Start-Up and Commissioning Support

The Hyperion Treatment Plant, operated by the Los Angeles Department of Sanitation and Environment, is one of the largest wastewater treatment facilities in the world. The sewage treatment process at Hyperion generates a renewable fuel known as digester gas.

  • DCO provided engineering and construction management, start-up, and commissioning support to Constellation Energy for the CHP plant.
  • One of the largest wastewater treatment facilities in the world
  • 32 MW digester gas-fired combined heat and power plant
  • Two Solar Mars combustion turbine generators with HRSGs, SCRs and duct firing capabilities
  • Digester gas cleanup system with Chiller Based Configuration for moisture removal coupled with an advanced Siloxane Removal System, Digester Gas Compression System 

Renewable digester gas is the primary fuel used to create all steam and electricity required for plant operations, dramatically reducing facility emissions.
