SUMMARY

 

The WPCF cogeneration system currently utilizes a Jenbacher cogeneration engine to produce energy from biogas to provide power to the WPCF. In November 2014, the City commissioned a Jenbacher Model JGS 416 cogeneration engine as part of the WPCF Cogeneration Upgrade Project. The cogeneration engine surpassed a 60,000-engine operating hour milestone and is due for a complete engine overhaul, long block replacement, and other milestone replacements, as recommended by the engine manufacturer. Western Energy Systems is the exclusive authorized and certified parts and service provider for all Jenbacher products on the west coast. Staff is recommending the City execute a single source agreement with Western Energy Systems to perform the engine overhaul and other recommended milestone replacements in an amount not-to-exceed $558,500, in order to continue to provide reliable and sustainable power to the WPCF.
