Assistant Secretary of the Navy, the Honorable Dennis V. McGinn (right), Energy, Installations and Environment, tours the landfill gas-to-energy project with Fred Broome, director, Installation and Environment Division, Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, Georgia, during his visit here, May 19. The landfill gas-to-energy project is the first-of-its-kind within the Department of the Navy. It uses a 1.9 megawatt combined heat and power generator to recover methane gas from a neighboring landfill and converts it into energy and steam to help power Marine Depot Maintenance Command. A second generator is currently being installed, which will bring the plant’s total capacity up to 4.0 megawatts.
