PIDC Completes 3.3MW Combined Heat & Power Plant for Hollingsworth & Vose

PIDC design/build team successfully completed the Combined Heat and Power Plant for Hollingsworth and Vose at their Groton, Massachusetts paper mill. By achieving a key performance milestone on 12/10/15, Hollingsworth and Vose received a significant rebate from National Grid. The entire project, from design, procurement, permitting, construction, commissioning, start up and testing was accomplished in twelve (12) months.  The project includes installation of a 3.3MW Solar gas turbine and a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) that combined provide the mill with the majority of their power needs and 100% of their steam load.  The system operates electrically paralleled to the National Grid electric system.
