Biomass power plant gains.
According to Michael Bartoszek, president and CEO of the company Laidlaw Energy Group Inc, "We met with Governor Lynch and Councilor Ray Burton, both of whom voiced strong support for the project. We hope to move forward expeditiously. The critical thing is understanding the time frame for permitting, but we expect everything to go well and hope to be up and running by 2007."
Laidlaw EcoPower is a joint venture between Laidlaw Energy and EcoPower LLC that hopes to make upgrades to the combustion system of a non-operating 16-megawatt biomass energy facility in central New Hampshire. Bartoszek declined to give the exact location, citing confidentiality issues at this time.
The new plant is expected to generate 16 megawatts of gross electric capacity through the use of combustion control equipment and an advanced emissions control system.
The plant also is expected to generate new jobs and other economic benefits for the area, said Bartoszek.
