The site is configured with two Lurgi multi-hearths, bubbling fluidized bed furnaces with numerous modifications. Post combustor, super-heater, then into the steam boiler. Boilers process the steam into a turbine, which operates the Alstrom 18 megawatt generator. The facility,commissioned in 1988, was designed to handle large volumes of cow manure (1200 tons/day) as a waste-to-energy plant.


The existing site houses an agri-waste to energy facility consisting of a power generating station and support buildings. The 18-megawatt power generation facility is located in an industrially zoned region of the County and was initially developed in 1986-1988 with a Conditional Use Permit.


The power plant facility is composed of a number of buildings and features. A large storage building on the east side, which was used to store fuel (manure). The main power generating portion of the facility is composed of (2) large furnaces, boilers, ductwork, baghouse, exhaust stack, turbine, generator, transformers, cooling towers water treatment fuel handling system, and ash handling systems. A small metal building containing offices, lab, control room, battery room, switchgear room and locker room facilities. A shop building for housing trucks and equipment. A raw water storage pond, septic and leaching systems and a storm-water runoff basin. The site is enclosed by chain link fence. All utilities are installed underground except electric transmission lines which are overhead.




The structural steel framing and miscellaneous steel components are in good condition, no scaling of the steel components were observed. All connections of the structural steel members were intact and in good condition.


The contract construction drawings for the foundation indicated that the plant is resting on driven concrete piles with concrete pile caps and footings supporting the structure. The steel column base plates rest on concrete pedestals, which are connected to the pile caps.


The concrete pedestals are cracking and sprawling, however, after chipping at the pedestals the concrete is loose only at the perimeter of the base plate and not below the ground surface. While chipping at the concrete pedestals, it was also observed under the face of the base plate was solid
