Southeast Renewable Energy to set up 15 MW biomass power unit
(ADPnews) - Nov 26, 2010 - US biomass plant developer Southeast Renewable Energy (SRE) said on Monday it will set up a 15 MW biomass power plant in the state of South Carolina.
The USD-50-million (EUR 37.6m) plant, to be built in Allendale County, will generate electricity by processing timber residues.
According to SRE's president and CEO, Raine Cotton, the company is "working diligently to get the last few steps of the project worked out; including permitting, that will allow the project to begin construction in early 2011."
The project is seen to be completed towards the end of 2012 and to open 20 workplaces in the next five years.
SRE plans to build a similar facility in Dorchester County.
The company added that it has agreed to sell the generated electricity to Santee Cooper for a period of 30 years.
