The Jefferson Davis Electric Cooperative is a small T&D Cooperative in Southern Louisiana. Its transmission feed was decimated after hurricane Laura and the transmissions lines would need to be completely rebuilt. This provided the opportunity to harden and modernize the transmission systems which would improve reliability for future storm events. So instead of rushing to rebuild, the utility looked at alternatives to keep their customers energized for approximately 6 months while they developed a more resilient grid system than before.

Since Aggreko had the availability of multiple fuels and multiple technologies we were able to provide a complete analysis and a solution that would provide the best outcome for the utility, helping them reduce fuel costs and emissions. By using LNG we were able to reduce NOX emissions by 85%, CO emissions by 50% and CO2 emissions by 40%.

Setting up 5 distributed generation sites, installed at distribution substations, would be the best solution:

 

  • 4 sites producing 44.5 MW of natural gas generation
  • 1 site producing 2.5 MW of diesel generation
