Dalkia and Fengate Capital Management Ltd. Join Forces to Develop Second Biomass Power Plant in Merritt, British Columbia (Canada)
Jul 25 14
Dalkia and Fengate Capital Management Ltd. are joining forces to develop a second biomass power plant in Merritt, British Columbia (Canada). Designed and operated by Dalkia, the Merritt plant will be among the large in North America along with the Fort St. James plant, also developed by Dalkia and Fengate Capital Management Ltd. Under a Design, Finance, Build, Operate and Maintain (DFBOM) contract, Dalkia will provide the industrial management and maintenance of the facilities as well as biomass supply and preparation services. This plant will consume 307,000 metric tons of biomass a year, mainly sawmill waste. Supply will be managed by Dalkia and sourced from local sawmills. With an electricity production capacity of 40 MW, this plant will supply electricity to BC Hydro & Power Authority to power almost 40,000 Canadian households. Once operational, it will avoid the annual discharge of around 95,000 metric tons of CO(2) -- the equivalent of more than 45,000 cars off the road. This project will also create around 250 jobs during the construction phase and 80 new direct and indirect jobs during the plant's 30-year operation. This plant will be financed by Fengate Capital Management Ltd., together with a number of international and Canadian banks. As for Fort St. James, Dalkia and Fengate Capital Management Ltd. have contracted Iberdrola Engineering & Construction to build the plant.
