Rock Creek Digesters & Biogas Power Generation

DC Engineering provided the electrical, mechanical, and control system engineering for the large, multi-digester and power generation facility at the dairy near Filer, ID.  The project included manure reception tanks, six digesters, solids separation equipment, biogas piping and blowers, and two biogas generators producing power to sell to the utility.  

The controls system design included a PLC based system with remote I/O panels communicating over Ethernet to the PLC.  A local server was installed with HMI software configured to display a graphical representation of the system both locally and remotely, as well as historian software with trending and data analysis tools. 

DC Engineering also performed the system integration services on the project including PLC and HMI programming, historian configuration and report generation, and startup for the new system.
