WBIA member Miron Construction and international engineering and project management company AMEC were recently selected to team up as EPC contractor for Flambeau River Biofuel’s $250 biorefinery. The plant, which will be located at an existing pulp and paper mill in Park Falls, Wisconsin, will be the largest second generation “green diesel” plant in the U.S.
The press release from Miron Construction and Flambeau River Biofuels gives more details about the project:
“The Flambeau River bio-refinery will create permanent, high-skilled operating jobs in the region, long-term logging jobs, and short-term engineering and construction jobs, contributing to the economic stimulus of Park Falls, Wisconsin,” said Butch Johnson, majority owner of Flambeau River Papers and Flambeau River Biofuels.
“The AMEC-Miron team was selected for its experience and innovation in developing green energy and biofuel facilities,” said Johnson. “When completed, Flambeau will have the first integrated pulp and paper mill in North America to run on fossil-free energy.”
Tim Gelbar, President, AMEC’s Power and Process Americas business said: “The Flambeau program has been a long-term strategic focus of AMEC’s and it will play a key role in our continued development of new bioprocesses and the expansion of clean renewable energy.”
“We have been working with Flambeau for two years developing this project” said David G. Voss, Jr., President, Miron Construction. “The Flambeau BioFuels project is key to developing “green fuel” renewable energy alternatives and will have a significant positive economic impact in Wisconsin.”Permalink + Share This
