Anaergia to support RNG project in North Carolina
Under the terms of this new agreement, the scope of Anaergia’s activities will be ‘significantly expanded’ at C2NC’s facility in the town of Warsaw, North Carolina, which converts agricultural waste into renewable energy.
This is Anaergia’s second major capital equipment sale to C2NC. In addition to providing extra equipment, the contract terms call for Anaergia to manage construction at the C2NC facility, and then operate the plant for 10 years. The deal boosts Anaergia’s backlog by more than $50 million (€44.6 million).
Once the first phase is complete, the facility will feature three anaerobic digesters converting food industry and agricultural by-products into utility-scale RNG.
“This project will provide substantial environmental benefits to the region,” said Carbon Cycle Energy’s co-founder and co-CEO, Thomas Mulholland.
“We are very pleased to be working with Anaergia to unlock the hidden energy in food-supply by-products and to convert that underutilised resource into renewable energy.”
Andrew Benedek, chairman and CEO of Anaergia, added: “It is particularly gratifying for Anaergia to receive this significant new contract for the expansion at C2NC. This repeat sale, coupled with the long-term operating contract, underscores how our industry-leading capabilities are recognised by significant RNG project developers.”
