Get a clearer picture of how your waste-to-energy facility performs.
Landfill Gas to Energy (LFGTE) plants that convert harvested methane gas to energy are composed of several sub-systems that must operate flawlessly to ensure maximum production output. The methane has to be collected and treated, the engine needs to be controlled, emissions need to be regulated, and power must be transformed and measured before hitting the grid. Having a reliable control system that allows the plant to provide equipment statuses, send out critical alerts, and generate operational reports is critical.
Affinity Energy has experience configuring supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems for many LFGTE projects. Our SCADA interfaces are designed to be clear and easy-to-interpret to ensure accurate data analysis and ease of operation. They collect data from multiple points and issue consolidated performance reports showing power plant efficiency and individual equipment maintenance needs. This proactive monitoring helps reduce costs and downtime.
Affinity Energy’s engineers are skilled in programmable logic controller (PLC) development to provide customized functionality and visibility into waste-to-energy treatment systems, engines, electrical switchgear and other related equipment. Because we’re an open systems integrator, customers have a wider range of PLC choices and price points.
