Singapore Sites

N&N Agricultural Pte Ltd

N&N is a 600,000 heads chicken layer farm. Chicken manure is fed to an anaerobic digester to produce biogas, which is delivered through 2 units of biogas blowers to 2 units of 45kW biogas compressors, allowing power to be produced by a CR1000 (1MW) MicroTurbine. The exhaust flue gas from the CR1000 is used for drying of spent grain (from beer brewery) to be part of the chicken feed.


313@Somerset is a shopping mall in Orchard Road. A unit of C65 (65kW) MicroTurbine with integrated Hot Water Economizer (HWE) is operated with diesel on Combined Heat and Power (CHP) basis, supplying both power and 80°C hot water to the food court and restaurants in the shopping mall.

Philippines Sites

Biotech Farms Inc. (BFI)

BFI is a 2,500 sow level piggery. Pig manure is fed to an anaerobic digester to produce biogas which is delivered through 2 units of biogas blowers to 2 units of 37kW biogas compressors, allowing power to be produced by a CR800 (800kW) MicroTurbines. BFI is working on using the exhaust flue gas of the CR800 for themal applications in 2015.
