Salem County Improvement Authority Landfill Flare Control Panel Replacement – Summary of Work

The selected Vendor shall supply a flare control panel and motor starter panel with VFDs to control the operations of an enclosed flare and two blowers.  The purpose of this Summary of Work is to describe the proposed flare control panel and the anticipated procurement and installation process.

The SCIA Landfill gas collection and control system (GCCS) flare station currently operates a single enclosed flare with a nominal capacity rating of 32.75 MMBtu/hour (nominally 1,000 scfm of landfill gas) manufactured by Parnell.  The stack is 84 inches in diameter and 30 feet tall.  Landfill gas is conveyed to the flare by two belt-drive centrifugal blowers installed in parallel.  The blowers are manufactured by Hoffman (Gardner Denver), Model 4103 with a 15-HP motor.    This project will replace the existing flare control panel and motor starter panel with new panels comprised of the necessary components to operate, monitor and control the blowers and flare as specified.

The controls package for the new blowers and flare will replace the existing blower/flare station controls.  All installation activities will be performed by others and generally include:

  • Site preparation and removal of existing panels to be replaced.
  • Installation of new control panel, VFDs, connecting wire and conduit, and replacement sensors and accessories supplied under this contract.
  • Installation and connection of remote monitoring and control (RMC) equipment designed and fabricated by others.

All structural supports and electrical connections to provide a functioning system that will provide vacuum to the GCCS and convey the collected gas to the new flare.
