Containerized 1MWh Li-ion Energy Storage System with two 120kW inverters

AVL completed the integration of our customer 1MWh Energy Storage System.  This project was involving complex, relatively new technologies, with many stakeholders and potential pitfalls.  The project was delivered to our customer whose end client was Xeni Gwet’in First Nation in  Nemiah Valley, BC.

20+ 1250kw mobile power units

AVL recently completed a design/build project for 20+ mobile power modules. Each fully insulated module consisted of 1250kW tier 4 gensets with dual custom 900 gallon diesel fuel tanks. The mobile units will be employed to provide emergency/backup power for a US retail chain.

Energy Storage System 700kW – 1400kWH

AVL recently integrated and commissioned a UL9540 rated BESS at a refrigeration facility.   The BESS is a 0.7 MW/1.4 MWh system connected behind the facility meter, designed to provide 0.7 MW of power, on-demand, to cover part of the facility load.
AVL designed and integrated the system for our customer who provided the LG Batteries, Ingeteam inverters, and Leclanche Controls. The system allows for immediate response to inrush loads and curtails power by reacting during Ontario peak loads.  20ft Battery container which houses Li-Ion batteries in racks, fire suppression, DC disconnect, auxiliary power distribution, controls and cooling equipment

2X 2MW Walk In Custom Enclosures

Commissioning has started on our customers 2x 2MW walk in “peak shaving” systems. The project presented some unique design challenges as the overall footprint available to AVL was limited. The radiator, SCR and silencer were all required to be mounted on the roof.

3x 2.5MW Generator Enclosure for Data Centre

The disassembly begins on our customer’s custom enclosures. The three 2.5MW CAT 3520’s will be part of a fleet to provide critical backup power for a data center in Quebec.

Outdoor Electrical Power Centre Enclosure

AVL has completed a turnkey, fully insulated Outdoor Electrical Power Centre Enclosure. The enclosure is 36’ X 12’ X 12’ and houses nine (9) TPS switchgear cubicles. Ancillary equipment includes a 250 Amp ATS, 24 VDC station power supply panel, 45 kVa transformer & 225 A Distribution Board. Heating and cooling will is provided by two (2) 5 TON HVAC units. The final destination for the switchgear enclosure will be a water treatment facility in Cambridge, Ontario and is designed to -40°C to +40°C.

2MW diesel gensets integrated with UPS technology in dual 45’ long enclosures completed

AVL has completed the 2MW diesel gensets integrated with UPS technology in dual 45’ long enclosures.   The dual 45’ long enclosures connects side by side and allows for full internal access. The system employs two (2) Cummins 2MW diesel gensets integrated with HITECS UPS technology. AVL’s scope included the fabrication of the dual enclosures (including removable roof panels for ease of removing components by crane) radiator penthouse structure, paint finish and installation of all mechanical and electrical components.

Thermal Hydrolysis Processing unit

AVL Manufacturing is excited to work with our customer in completing the packaging of the first, low temperature, low-pressure mobile Thermal Hydrolysis Processing unit (Lystek Mobile THP®) – a first in the biosolids and organics management sector in North America.
This new innovation was conceived in response to growing market demand from smaller-scale treatment plant operators for sustainable biosolids management solutions in support of the movement toward resource recovery. It is designed to operate entirely within two vertically stacked 50’ custom-made containers and requires minimal, external utilities.

Let’s Talk Energy – Open House

Let’s Talk Energy Event had a great turnout at AVL Manufacturing 243 Queen Street North. Our expert panel consisting of Toromont CAT, AVL Manufacturing, NRG Peaks, GHD, Safetypower & Certarus discussed scenarios that are challenging electricity consumers in Ontario.
This free info session was a great opportunity to discuss how industry leaders are leveraging Combined Heat and Power (CHP), Energy Storage System (ESS) and the latest natural gas engine technology to mitigate rising energy costs & Global Adjustment.

Compact 588 kWh ESS – 2 MW of power

It was a pleasure to work with our customer on their latest project. AVL, along with our sister company ECO-H Technologies, collaborated with our customer to design & build a specialized energy storage system (ESS) for a wastewater treatment plant in the City of Santa Rosa, CA.  Our customer created an ESS that would ensure 100% plant uptime by facilitating the seamless transition from the utility grid to the diesel gensets.  In the event of a grid power failure, this compact 588 kWh ESS outputs 2 MW of power for 15 minutes.

Our Applications Engineer overcame a huge challenge when the site was not large enough to support a standard 40-foot containerized ESS. Nuvation worked with us to build a compact 24-foot container that met all specifications. PCS integration and final testing were performed at Parker Hannifin – Energy Grid-Tie Division. We look forward to future projects with Nuvation Energy.


4x 2MW Natural Gas CHP systems

AVL has designed and built four 2MW natural gas CHP systems. Each system will have jacket water heat recovery and will be powered by a CAT G3520H. The four systems will be installed at greenhouses in the Niagara Region for a federally licensed producer of medical cannabis. Delivery of the four systems is scheduled for late 2018.

2MW CHP Industrial District Energy System

AVL was approached by our customer to build an Industrial District Energy System — a two-megawatt natural gas system to provide electricity, hot water, and steam to heat or cool the Authority’s tenant buildings on Pier 10.
This 2MW walk-in CHP system (combined heat and power) is located adjacent to the Arts & Science brewery on Burlington Street East and is part of the Authority’s move to deliver clean and efficient energy to its industrial and business tenants and to transition into an industrial hub.

7x 1MW Mobile Rental Power Units

AVL is very proud to announce that we have completed for our customer the build of seven, 1MW Mobile Power unit packages for their rental fleet. The 40′ custom ISO containers will house CAT’s C32 engine. Our relationship with our customer continues to grow with this repeat order, and were up for the challenge to have all seven units tested and ready for the spring rental season!

The Green Organic Dutchmen

AVL was approached by cannabis producers The Green Organic Dutchmen (TGOD) from Ancaster, Ontario to design and build a temporary laboratory for their drying and extraction operations. The fully insulated four room laboratory consisted of two production rooms that were GMP compliant (wipe down only), main entrance change or “clean” room and a utility/electrical room. Complete electrical, HVAC & fire suppression were also provided.

Modified 53’ intermodal container to package a reverse osmosis system.

AVL engineers collaborated closely with our customer to design a fully insulated, modified 53’ intermodal container. This package will employ a reverse osmosis system to treat boiler water at an Oil & Gas refinery in Houston, Texas. Complete with heat-resistant coatings, anti-slip floor, hurricane-rated door hardware, and tie-downs & flame-resistant wall panel. Exceptional work by our shop staff!
