PROJECT LOCATION: Greenville, SC
AWARDS ONE: EPA’s ‘2008 Project of the Year’
The landfill gas development project at the Enoree Landfill in Greenville, SC, began when William P. Brinker won the public bid to construct the gas control and collection system (GCCS).s the GCCS was being built, William negotiated a gas development agreement with the County to find a beneficial end use for the gas.
The GCCS construction was overseen by several companies representing the interest of Greenville County, SC. Golder Associates provided consulting and engineering, SynTerra performed QA/QC, and Enerdyne Power Systems and Advance One Development provided construction services. Greenville County was represented by Marcia Papin, Susan Harrison, Wayne Moorhead and Robert Hatton. The head engineers overseeing the project were Claudia Moller, Bill Clister and Kevin Brown from Golder Associates. Representing Enerdyne Power Systems, Inc. and Advance One Development, was William P. Brinker, Andy Murrer, Alex Diffey, Taylor Wood and Brian Sirota.
After several months of searching for end users, direct-use options for the gas were ruled out due to the distance and rocky conditions. After several negotiations with local utilities, the best available end-use option was with Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC. The project provides 3.2 megawatts of continuous power production to South Carolina, sufficient energy to power more than 2,000 homes.
