The City of Oceanside, California completed its 2nd year of operation of a cogen facility built completely with private money.
The CHP system in Oceanside saves the city up to $ 250,000 per year in power costs
while reducing CO2 emissions by 5600 tons annually. This is equivalent to removing 900 cars from the road each year.
A secondary benefit is being realized in excellent uptime and the reduction of
maintenance cost of the engines due to the Biospark fuel treatment system which
removes moisture and contaminants from the gas.
CHP Clean Energy, LLC funded and owns the project and will maintain and operate the
facility under a Power Purchase Agreement for ten years with an option to renew
for 10 years.

GOLDEN HARVEST SHIPS UV LEVEL CONTROL GATES FOR INDIANAPOLIS:
Golden Harvest, Inc. recently shipped seven (7) GH-9000 level control gates from their factory in Burlington,Washington for installation in Indianapolis, Indiana’s Belmont Wastewater Treatment Plant. This will be the world’s largest installation for controlling water levels with an ultraviolet disinfection system.
The gates will be installed to control water level in the 98” wide channel following the Trojan Technologies UV3000Plus Ultraviolet Disinfection System. The system will treat 170 MGD peak flow through seven channels.
Each gate which is fabricated from 316L stainless steel, will control flows from 8 – 25 mgd with total headloss of 3-6” across the entire flow range. The gates require no electrical
connections and were selected as a simpler alternative to electrically controlled weir gates.
The system is scheduled to begin operation in summer of 2013.
