The Taylor Biomass Energy (TBE) is undertaking the Montgomery Biomass Power Plant project on 38.4ha of land in New York, the US.
The project involves the construction of a 24MW clean and renewable biomass energy plant in four phases using Taylor's Gasification Process technology. It includes the construction of two biomass storage silos, a gasification unit, and a power generation pad, a two-story office building, and a three-story office building.
The project also includes the installation of gas turbines, which will be supplied by Solar Turbines, a subsidiary of Caterpillar.
The plant will be installed with three fluidized-bed reactors including a gasification reactor, a combustion reactor, and a gas conditioning reactor. The gasification and combustion reactors will be of the circulating type while the gas conditioning reactor will be of the bubbling type reactor.
The power generated will be transmitted through a 69kV electric transmission line to local Central Hudson Gas and Electric Corporation Grid System. The plant will be built at an existing site of the Taylor Recycling Facility (TRF), which will render municipal solid waste to the Biomass Plant. The capacity of the TRF will be increased from 307t per day (TPD) of construction and demolition (C&D) waste and 100TPD of wood waste to 450TPD of C&D Waste, 100TPD of wood waste and 500TPD of municipal solid waste.
The feedstock will be generated from Mixed Solid Waste (MSW). The feedstock will enter into gasification system to produce the medium calorific synthesis gas (syn-gas) which can be the substitute for natural gas. The electricity is produced through Combined Cycle Power Island.
O' Neal has been appointed as the EPC contractor, Erin as the contractor for the Waste Handling Design and Equipment Supply and Taylor Recycling Facility as Long-term Waste Supplier contractor.
TBE applied for US Department of Energy (DOE) loan for the first and second phase in September 2009 and in January 2010.
In August 2010, the project has been funded with US$100 million by DOE and TBE will additionally receive US$30 million through federal tax credit made available for renewable energy projects.
TBE broke ground for construction of the plant in December 2010; however, the project was put on hold due to funding issues.
On May 10, 2012, the project received the green light from Montgomery town board approving for phase three of the project’s site plan, thus allowing the company to begin major construction.
In April 2015, Industrial Development Agency agreed to generate up to US$200 million tax-exempt bonds and another US$75 million through equity.
Planning activities are underway.
The project involves the construction of a 24MW biomass power plant on 38.4ha of land in Montgomery, New York the US.
The US$275 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of two biomass storage silos
2. Construction of a gasification unit
3. Construction of a power generation pad
4. Installation of gas turbines
5. Installation of generator
6. Laying of transmission lines
