New Steam Plant

Recommended Posts

That would also take a TON off of deferred maintenance correct?

Wait, new buildings?  I thought UND was being bulldozed one building at a time.

It's crazy. I mean between a new steam plant, new med school, new aerospace building, collaborative energy complex, core library expansion, and indoor practice facility, it's almost like the chicken littles here are wrong about UND being shut down. Next up: new business school.

Would think it would use nat gas, which is so much cleaner and a ND product now too.

Is that the reason the stacks aren’t so tall?

At one point they were looking at capturing and selling activated carbon from the burned coal. Not sure if that's still in the cards or not.

It might be that UND and Johnson Controls and Mac McLennan have been talking. Mac's organization has excess capacity that may be useful in this venture. You don't need tall stacks when your local fired systems are the backups to electric powered primaries.
