Document Description
Construction and operation of a cogeneration power plant at an existing lumber manufacturing facility. Project includes construction of a new fuel handling building, boiler building, turbine building, cooling tower, electrostatic precipitator, ash silo and electric substation. The boiler would burn biomass fuel generated by on-site lumber facility, regional facilities and other biomass fuel sources. At completion, the boiler would produce 250,000 lbs of steam per hour, which would be used for drying lumber at the on-site lumber facility and for the proposed steam turbine. The steam turbine would drive a generator that would have the capacity to produce MW of electricity. The electricity would be used to power the on-site lumber facility, with excess electricity available for sale to the public utility grid.
