BlueRock Energy has signed an agreement to provide support services to ReEnergy’s 60-megawatts Black River bioenergy plant.
Under the agreement, BlueRock Energy will provide load forecasting, scheduling and delivery services from the plant to the Fort Drum U.S. Army installation near Watertown, New York and other wholesale support services designed to provide ReEnergy timely and accurate power delivery services under ReEnergy’s agreement with Fort Drum.
The facility, previously fired primarily by coal, was idled in early 2010 by its former owner. ReEnergy acquired the facility in December 2011 and invested more than US$34 million to convert it to biomass. The converted facility began operations in May 2013. ReEnergy Black River submitted a proposal to the Defense Logistics Agency as part of a competitive procurement process in Spring 2013.
