Biogas Infrastructure completed on Australia’s first piggery to run electricity from an on-site Biogas Digester facility.
Doolee Construction has delivered on the infrastructure works required for the Biogas Plant at the GD Pork Piggery in Western Australia. Doolee undertook the design and construction of the structural elements required for this biogas plant. Infrastructure elements included reinforced concrete slabs and walls, stainless steel tanks, 28m in diameter and 6m in height along with associated pipework and feedlines.
The overall project involved the installation of an anaerobic digester tank where the waste from the pigs flows into. The bacteria breaks down the waste and creates methane which is then put into generators, creating electricity. The Biogas facility will be capable of producing 1.7 MW per year which will make the farm fully self sufficient.
