SA Water has requested 1414 Degrees to have the GAS-TESS operational by the end of October to prepare for electricity export to the grid as an embedded generator on the National Electricity Market.

The Glenelg Wastewater Treatment Plant can generate electricity from gas engines, solar PV and the GAS-TESS but has not been able to export to the grid pending SA Power Networks’approval.

SA Power Networks intends to conduct verification testing and witnessing in November, and in preparation, SA Water requires all generation devices to be integrated into an upgraded plant control system, which will be implemented prior to SA Power Networks testing.

14D will commence recommissioning its GAS-TESS from Thursday,1 October, and will provide progress updates to the market as it proceeds.
