Test Tatura GreenPower

Biogas Generator

Tatura, Victoria
Capacity: 1.1 MW
Commissioned: 2007
Owned and operated by Diamond Energy

The biogas generation facility in Tatura was Diamond Energy’s first renewable generator. It captures methane from the anaerobic digestion of sewage waste water at Goulburn Valley Water’s Shepparton Wastewater Treatment Plant. Wastewater from Tatura’s local community and industry (including Tatura Milk’s production factory) is fed into the Tatura treatment plant which in turn produces a methane-rich biogas. This methane is the fuel to the Diamond Energy renewable generation facility, and the power produced is fed back into the national grid.
