OPAL and NextEra Energy Marketing Announce Plans to Build Minnesota's First Renewable Natural Gas Facility

OPAL | April 28, 2021

OPAL Fuels LLC, a Fortistar portfolio company, and NextEra Energy Marketing, LLC, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, LLC today announced plans to build the first landfill renewable natural gas (RNG) production facility in Minnesota. The project will be located at a landfill owned by Republic Services, Inc. (NYSE: RSG), a leader in the U.S. environmental services industry, and interconnect with a pipeline owned by Xcel Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: XEL), the leading electric and gas utility in the region. For many years, OPAL, which was previously known as Fortistar RNG and TruStar Energy, has collected and processed gas to generate electricity at the 255-acre Pine Bend Landfill in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. NextEra Energy Marketing will work with OPAL to replace the existing power generation facility with a new RNG production facility that will capture 3,200 standard cubic feet per minute of landfill gas and produce over 6 million gas gallon equivalents (GGE) of RNG per year. The Pine Bend RNG Project will create approximately 50 to 60 construction jobs. Once completed in the first quarter of 2022, the project will capture and convert landfill methane to produce approximately 2,140 dekatherms of RNG per day, which is enough to eliminate 43,900 metric tons of carbon and offset direct (scope 1) emissions from 400 heavy-duty (class 8) trucks every year. OPAL will operate and manage the RNG project, and clean renewable natural gas fuel will be dispensed to customers via OPAL's natural gas fueling stations. "Our agreement with NextEra Energy Marketing and Republic Services offers a tremendous economic and environmental opportunity for the State of Minnesota. From both a fiscal and sustainability standpoint, renewable natural gas is the highest value product you can make from captured landfill gas," said Jonathan Maurer, co-CEO of OPAL. "We're proud to work with industry leaders and continue to play a major role in the decarbonization of our nation's economy by capturing methane to create cleaner fuel for natural gas vehicles." "We're pleased to be working with OPAL and Republic Services on this innovative project," said John Ketchum, president and chief executive officer of NextEra Energy Resources. "This transaction is consistent with our belief that a substantial, and economic decarbonization of the electricity, industrial, and transportation sectors is possible which represents a significant investment opportunity in the coming decades." "As a leader in the environmental services industry, Republic Services is proud of this innovative partnership with OPAL and NextEra at our Pine Bend Landfill to create Minnesota's first renewable natural gas facility," said Pete Keller, Republic Services vice president of recycling and sustainability. "This project will allow us to utilize a natural byproduct of the landfill to produce low-carbon transportation fuels and other forms of renewable energy and help Republic meet our goal of sending 50 percent more biogas to beneficial reuse by 2030." The project is driven by an exceptional match among several companies, equally passionate about innovation and the transition to environmental sustainability in their respective industries. For OPAL, the Pine Bend RNG Project is the sixth in a series of 12 RNG projects that will require nearly $500 million of capital investment and capture the equivalent of more than 2 million metric tons of CO2 annually—the equivalent of taking approximately 435,000 passenger cars off the road. Republic Services is involved with gas-to-energy projects at 69 of its landfills, and 20 percent of its fleet is powered by natural gas, including RNG derived from landfills. This joint project directly supports Republic Services' commitment to send 50 percent more landfill gas to beneficial reuse by 2030. Inver Grove Heights Mayor Tom Bartholomew, who led the City Council in approving the project said, "This facility is exactly the kind of development we encourage in our community.

XCMG's XGC15000A Sets New Wind Power Hoisting Record, Supports Low-Carbon Energy Construction

Sunburst Workforce Advisors | March 21, 2022

XCMG's (SHE:000425) 1,000-ton crawler crane, XGC15000A, has set a new world record after completing its first single-arm wind power hoisting operation at a height of 172+12 meters for the Jinjiaozhou wind power farm in Qingdao, China. Weighing in at 118 tons the 4.5MW wind power turbine hoisted to a height of 170 meters with the diameter of the impeller reaching 156 meters. It adopts the world-leading prestressed fatigue resistant framed steel pipe wind power tower that greatly increases the height of the wind turbine when compared with the common 120-140 meters flexible tower in the industry, which better utilizes wind resources and increases power generation efficiency. However, the higher installation height posed greater challenges for the crawler crane. The flat and open project site usually experiences strong wind greater than level 5, and the fully prepared construction team quickly completed the operation during a short "wind-free" time window, thanks to the powerful and stable performance of the XGC15000A. "The tower height at this wind farm will reach 180 meters or even above 200 meters, and facing these challenges, we found that XCMG had already taken everything into consideration. We believe XCMG can fully meet our needs in the future," - Di Caijin, who was responsible for the on-site hoisting operation. The successful installation makes the XGC15000A the world's first wind power crawler crane to achieve a hoisting height of 170 meters. China has pledged to reach carbon peak by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060, and according to the latest analysis from Wood Mackenzie, the country is expected to reach 700GW of cumulative connected wind capacity by 2030 and annual wind and photovoltaic installed capacity needs will reach 100- to 200 million kilowatts, which calls for more wind power projects to be developed at lower costs. In February, XCMG delivered China's largest tonnage wind power reach stacker, XCS70S, which was co-developed and customized by XCMG and CRRC Zhuzhou Institute Wind Power Business Unit. With a rated load of 70 tons, the product has a much broader range of applications and was designed for the hoisting operations of large-scale wind turbines and equipment. It is equipped with exclusive spreaders that increase hoisting and handling efficiency three-fold.
