: I am a college student working in the field doing a research paper on electrical generation. I need help locating and identifying those facilities that use large stationary diesel engine-generator sets as its primary source of electrical power. These engines are typically large low rpm units that are designed to run continuously for extended periods, and usually recover waste heat (co-gen). This would exclude stand-by emergency generators. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
There are several companies that have Landfill to energy plants using diesel engines. Gas Recovery Systems, Inc. has 30+ plants throughout the U.S.. Waste Management also owns and operates like plants. They use various diesel engines to accomplish this. They are but not limited to Superior 8G825's, 8GTLA's, Waukesha 7042's, and Cat's. You can bet where there is a big Landfill someone has a plant there.
