Green plant given green light in New Hampshire

In New Hampshire, US, New York-based Laidlaw Energy Group has gained consent that will see the construction of a biomass plant in Berlin.

Dedicated to developing power production facilities, Laidlaw Energy is now set to erect its $100 million (€74.27 million) plant at the site of the former Fraser Paper Mill.

While Babcox and Wilcox will provide the EPC services, Homeland Renewable Energy is expected to operate the plant when it is up and running.

The new power plant will produce 70MW of energy annually from 700,000 tonnes of woodchips, provided by Cousineau Forest Products.

Commenting on the project, Michael Bartoszek, Laidlaw’s CEO, said: ‘This was no easy task but the citizens of New Hampshire can be confident that our project has been subject to the highest degree of scrutiny to ensure that this will be a safe and reliable source of clean energy for decades to come.’
