Omnitek Engineering Corp. will be fulfilling an order for a biogas-powered power generator unit that National Raisin Co. Inc. will be deploying in the San Joaquin Valley region of California.
Omnitek, which focuses on diesel-to-natural gas engine conversion systems and related products, will provide its natural gas conversion technology for the 250 kW stationary combined heat and power (CHP) unit. The biogas to power the generator will be derived from an anaerobic digester process capable of producing an estimated 100,000 cubic feet of renewable natural gas per day from the farm's liquid waste.
‘Combining Omnitek's technology with the abundance of biogas derived through this innovative anaerobic process offers significant economic and environmental benefits to the agricultural industry,’ says Werner Funk, president and CEO of Omnitek.
Omnitek has deployed similar biogas-powered diesel conversions in the Philippines.
