Gemma Power Systems completes ETEC biomass plant three months early
In Texas, US, Gemma Power Systems, an EPC company and wholly owned subsidiary of Argan, has finished building the East Texas Electric Cooperative (ETEC) Woodville Renewable Power Project, three months ahead of schedule.
The 49.9MW biomass in Woodville has now completed testing and been turned over to ETEC for commercial operation.
'The Gemma team worked in close partnership with our customer ETEC to bring this project in on budget and three months ahead of schedule,' says William Griffin, Jr., CEO of Gemma Power Systems.
Construction on the plant began in July 2012. It will be operated by Gemma Plant Operations, a subsidiary of Gemma Power Systems, under a separate contract with ETEC.
The ETEC Woodville Renewable Power project is fuelled by chipped forest waste. The plant features a Shin Nippon steam turbine generator and a Riley Power advanced stoker boiler with integrated air quality control system.
