Located in the City of Montreal, Quebec, the Biomont 4.8MW cogeneration project is for the installation of three (3) internal combustion engines coupled with three (3) generators, each with an installed capacity of 1.6 MW. The electricity produced by the plant will be sold to Hydro-Québec Distribution under a power purchase agreement with a term of twenty-five (25) years from the date of commercial operation of the facility. Residual heat from the engines will be recovered and used to heat the nearby TOHU and Cirque du Soleil facilities. Biomont will thus fully make use of the biogases emanating from the former Miron quarry landfill located on the Saint-Michel Environmental Complex ("CESM"), from which the biogas is recovered by the City of Montreal and delivered to Biomont.
