1414 Degrees Limited and SA Water have signed the Project Development Agreement (‘PDA’), to commence construction for the Company’s GAS-TESS device at SA Water’s Glenelg Wastewater Treatment Plant.

This is the first installation of a 1414 Degrees product at a commercial site. The thermal energy storage system will demonstrate its effectiveness by storing energy generated from biogas harvested from the SA Water Glenelg Wastewater Treatment Plant. It will deliver heat energy for SA Waters’ digesters and electricity for general operations. It will also enable time shifting of electrical generation with the aim to assist SA Water in achieving their zero net electricity costs by 2020 target. 

The PDA is the agreement between 1414 Degrees and SA Water which details the requirements and responsibilities of each party, from installation to close of the project. It addresses all aspects including civil construction, safety, integration and operations.

1414 Degrees will now appoint civil works contractors to prepare the site for the GAS-TESS installation. Discussions with these contractors is well advanced and breaking of the ground at the SA Water site is scheduled to begin in November 2018. 

The GAS-TESS device will be transported to the Glenelg Wastewater Treatment plant from 1414 Degrees’ research and development facility at Southlink Industrial Park in late November 2018.
