EverGen Infrastructure achieves mechanical completion at Fraser Valley
Fraser Valley Biogas has been digesting manure and off-farm organics since 2011 and was the first agricultural digester to produce renewable natural gas in Canada. The RNG generated through this project is part of FortisBC’s program to supply renewable gas to homes, businesses, and its customers. Fraser Valley Biogas also provides Abbotsford farms with renewable fertilizer via the digestate produced as part of the process. EverGen acquired Fraser Valley Biogas early in 2021 and is currently enhancing and expanding the facility (photo courtesy EverGen).

In Canada, EverGen Infrastructure Corp. (EverGen) has announced the mechanical completion of the Fraser Valley Biogas RNG Expansion Project.

The Fraser Valley Biogas renewable natural gas (RNG) Expansion Project commenced construction in Q3 2022, with a scope that included improvements to the feedstock processing system, installation of new biogas to RNG upgrader, and the commissioning of a third anaerobic digester (AD) unit.

The upgrades will remove processing bottlenecks, provide enhanced flood protection, improve environmental controls, and increase operational reliability to double the processing and recovery capacity of RNG to bring the production capacity of the facility to ~160,000 gigajoules of RNG per year.

The mechanical completion phase signifies the finalization of the construction of all major equipment and systems. The project remains on budget with a total expected cost of approximately CA$12 million.

We are very pleased to announce the significant milestone of the Fraser Valley Biogas RNG Expansion Project reaching mechanical completion for EverGen’s second RNG expansion project. Our dedicated project team will now shift their focus to the installation of the new control system and commissioning of the facility expansion to achieve RNG production from the new (biogas) upgrader expected in December 2023, said Mischa Zajtmann, CEO of EverGen.

The Fraser Valley Biogas RNG Expansion Project is expected to provide significant increases to Revenue, Net Income, and EBITDA through the increased RNG production and improvements in RNG pricing upon the execution of a new long-term offtake agreement.
