Project Description

The Boise Emmett Power Plant was a 17 MW fuel fired plant producing power from wood products manufacturing wastes. Langdale Lumber Company purchased the power house for the turbine/generator and other equipment that was valuable enough to salvage. PES was contracted to identify and tag all reused equipment and dismantle that equipment for shipment to Georgia. The turbine, generator, gear box, water treatment equipment, control room equipment, office files and fixtures, and related parts were removed from the Emmett plant, crated and packed where appropriate, and loaded for shipment. Wood yard equipment including; truck dump and hydraulic unit, fuel receiving bin, metal detector, hog, and related equipment were also removed and shipped.
