dc.description.abstract This paper examines the production of standby electrical energy in Livestock Port in the Red Sea State in Sudan. The estimated power required for the (Livestock Port) is 5MW, which will be mainly produced by a hybrid renewable energy system of (solar+ wind) energies. A standby power is required to be produced from biogas and batteries to cover approximately 10% of the estimated 5MW power i.e. 500kW, out of which 250kW will be generated from a biogas plant. Since the activity of the port is relying on exporting livestock, the biogas production will be a by – product which can be produced due to the transient stay of animals (mainly sheep) in the port. The paper made use of the comparison of six different animal dungs in producing biogas under anaerobic conditions. Sheep dung was found to produce the greatest amount of biogas compared to the other animals. Two types of energy production from biogas were discussed i.e. gas turbine generator and the mix of biogas with diesel in diesel engines. The number of sheep passing the port was found suitable for the production of adequate amount of biogas to generate the required 250kW standby electrical power for the operation of the port. en_US
