Solar power
On March,1,2019 the Nikopol Solar Power Plant (SPP) started producing green electricity. The power plant has already reached its full design capacity of 200 MW and feeds this electricity into Ukraine’s power grid. The 200 MW plant was built in less than a year. In April 2018 DTEK signed an agreement for the design and construction of 200 MW solar power plant with Chinese company CMEC (China Machinery Engineering Corporation). The first solar panel on the SPP site was installed in October 2018. The solar power plant was put into exploitation in January 2019. The Nikopol SPP consists of 750 thousand PV panels located on the former quarry site. These are low-yield lands, which cannot be farmed efficiently

The purpose of the project

The purpose is to utilize landfill gas at MSW landfill and establish additional capacities of electricity generation, followed by sales in the Wholesale market of electricity according to the “green” tariff. 

 

Brief project description:

Khmelnytskyi municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill, located 2 km from the city, was put into operation in 1956. Currently, more than 4.5 million tons of MSW are stored at the landfill.

MSW landfill consists of several parts:

- access road which ensures transportation of MSW to the landfill and empty garbage trucks driving back;

- management zone intended to ensure operation of the landfill;

- MSW storage area, where waste are placed and disposed;

- transformer point for power supply from external electricity grids.

The size of the landfill body slopes at the ground: south – 510 m; north – 265 m; east – 400 m, west – 380 m.

The landfill is overloaded and requires urgent reorganization and remediation; it is a powerful source of landfill gas (LFG) formation. LFG of the MSW landfill do to the atmosphere, causing a significant greenhouse effect and negative impact on the environment and human health.

Steady population growth in the city of Khmelnytskyi and high specific indicators of MSW formation require drastic measures in the field of MSW management, especially their disposal at the landfill. Getting rid of most of the problems associated with the operation of the city landfill can become possible thanks to the implementation of the project on collection and utilization of LFG through the use of LFG as fuels to produce electricity and heat, and of carbon dioxide, which enhances the environmental effects of the project.

The experience of LFG utilization in energy institutions of Ukraine indicates the economic and environmental efficiency of this kind of projects. The calculations taking into account the lifetime of the landfill, MSW disposal volumes, landfill capacity, content of the MSW disposed, food and other organic waste, show that the use of even a fraction of the landfill for the MSW collection and disposal enables the establishment of a biomass power plant with a capacity of 1 MW. Connection to the electricity network and the sale of electricity received using biomass according to the "green tariff" makes this project economically attractive.

At the MSW landfill it is possible to guarantee the implementation of the project on construction of a Biomass Power Plant with a total installed capacity from 1,000 kW (performance in 2016) to 1,400 kW (performance in 2020). The modular design of generating blocks enables to increase the produced capacity in proportion to the power of individual units. In the future, depending on the depletion of the biogas flow from the MSW landfill, some of the generation modules can be dismantled and installed in other landfills.

 

Basic technical indicators:

As calculated, the amount of biomethane, produced at Khmelnytskyi landfill is about 600 m3/h.

Due to the constant delivery of new garbage its total amount is constantly increasing together with gassing. After closing and remediation of the MSW landfill the organic part of MSW continues to decompose, producing biogas. The basic source data used for calculation:

• Beginning MSW delivery - 1956

• Delivered in 2015 - 171.0thousand tons of MSW

• Accumulated amount of MSW (as of 2015) - 4.42 million tons of MSW

• Average depth of the landfill - 30 m

• Expected closure and remediation of the landfill - 2020

Biogas power plant with a capacity of 1 MW can generate electricity amounting to 8000 MW*hour/year. 

 

 Status of the project implementation:

Land and preliminary feasibility study (concept) of the project "Collection and utilization of landfill gas from the landfill in Khmelnytskyi" are available.

The tender documentation for the project "Utilization of landfill gas in the MSW landfill and establishment of an additional capacity to generate electricity" is under development.

Within the USAID project «Municipal Energy Reform in Ukraine" the project concept has been prepared and the negotiations are conducted with potential investors for their participation in the competition for this project.

Key economic indicators:

  • Total capital expenditures - 2,8 million USD
  • Payback period - from 2,3 years  

 

The forms of cooperation with investors:

Public-private partnership

The Dnipro city landfill was put into operation in 1998. The landfill is located outside the settlement, the sanitary protection zone - 500 m from residential buildings to the MSW warehouse area. Run-offs and reservoirs are absent. Due to the constant transportation of new batches, its total quantity increases by an average of 250 thousand tons per year, as well as gas extraction. After the closure and reclamation of the MSW landfill, the organic part of the solid waste continues to decompose, producing landfill biogas. Basic output data used to calculate: • The beginning of the introduction of solid waste - 1998; • Imported in 2017 - 254 thousand tons of solid waste; • The accumulated amount of solid waste (data in 2017) - 1.0 million tons of solid waste; • The area of the landfill, occupied by solid waste - 22 hectares. Forms of cooperation with the investor: a public-private partnership

Energy efficiency
The Project foresees heating networks reconstruction and their location optimization. The project scope includes: reconstruction of outdated on-ground and underground pipelines with the total length of 36,7 km in two-pipe measurement: shift from four-pipes to two-pipes heat supply system including DHW pipelines elimination; pipelines are foreseen to be laid mainly underground non-channeled, partially in crawlway assembled armed concrete channels (while approaching buildings’ foundations) and in solid-cast armed concrete channels (on the territories of kindergartens, schools and hospitals). Heating network partially is laid on-ground – towards the existing direction. For underground heating pipelines laying pre-insulated pipes are used (according to DSTU Б В.2.5-31:2007). For underground DHW pipelines laying flexible pre-insulated pipes (PEX-a) are used (according to DSTU Б В.2.5-31:2007). Pre-insulated pipes will be equipped with emergency warning system, status data could be read via SCADA system. The Project also foresees the application of chamber-free installation of pre-insulated shut-off armature, where it’s possible. Thermal chamber, no more used, are to be rehabilitated. The rehabilitation will improve the quality and sustainability of heat supply services, delivered to the consumers. The Project embraces: 38 thousands of consumers; 17 educational facilities; 13 kindergartens; 9 medical facilities; 5 social facilities; 51 other consumers
