Tallgrass, Kanin Energy, and Samuel EPC collaborate on Ohio Waste Heat to Power project

Read Time: 2 mins

Tallgrass, in partnership with Kanin Energy, has announced a collaboration with Samuel EPC on an innovative waste heat to power project in Ohio. This venture aims to deliver approximately 10 MW of continuous, carbon-free energy by 2025.

Samuel EPC will leverage its expertise in industrial decarbonization to support the project, which will provide power to the University of Dayton. This initiative will offset 100 percent of the university’s electricity needs, significantly reducing its carbon footprint by over 70 percent.

“There’s a growing demand for decarbonized energy, and Tallgrass is committed to identifying existing resources, such as unutilized industrial heat, that can be used to produce decarbonized power,” noted Justin Campbell, Tallgrass’ vice president of power and Transmission. He added, “We’re confident we’ve identified the right team for this project and look forward to working with Samuel.”

The project will utilize industrial heat from the Rockies Express Pipeline compressor station, generating a new pathway for decarbonization in the U.S. oil and gas sector. The facility will feature an organic Rankine cycle system with an air-cooled condenser to recover excess heat from three existing gas turbines. It is scheduled to be operational by 2025.

Samuel EPC, with over three decades of global experience in the energy sector, will lead the project’s engineering, procurement, and construction phases. Early integration of Samuel’s team in the design phase aims to ensure project coherence and maximize efficiency.

Samuel’s presidents, Curtis Stanley and Everod Samuel, emphasized, “The objectives of this project epitomize Samuel’s combined missions — providing solutions that are necessary for the enhancement of modern life and building the future.” They added, “Samuel’s proven, worldwide project delivery track record in project management, engineering and design, procurement and logistics, and construction and commissioning, will serve this project well.”

Kanin Energy supports the project development by overseeing the collaboration and execution of the waste heat to power project. Janice Train, Kanin Energy’s CEO, commented, “We are excited to continue moving this decarbonization project forward with Samuel EPC. The unique skillsets and strengths brought together by this project team will pave the way for a successful project while also demonstrating how waste heat to power is a critical tool for near-term emission reductions in heavy industry.”

The environmental benefits of this project include the reduction of over 50,000 tons of CO2 emissions and the generation of up to 85,000 MWh of carbon-free energy.
