MarCorp was excited to be a part of this “new era” environmentally friendly 3.2 megawatt power plant. Making this project extremely unique is the fact that this plant is not fired by coal or natural gas. It is powered by trash; methane gas to be specific. Methane is being extracted from the landfill site located in Elk City, Nebraska, owned by Waste Management Inc. This methane is then, in turn, being used by Omaha Public Power District to turn massive turbines. The end result, 32 total megawatts of electricity. Enough power to supply 2000 homes. Our tasks at hand was to install the entire electrical system required to make the system work. The installation ranged from the most detailed control wiring, to the actual 15 thousand-volt terminations that tie to OPPD’s power grid.
