Imperative Energy Ltd., a provider of biomass heat and power solutions in the UK and Ireland, said it is expanding its presence in the U.S. market with the announcement of two corporate milestones.
The first is a partnership with Northline Energy, a Lynnwood, Wash.-based provider of biomass combustion systems. The collaboration blends Imperative's project finance and project development expertise with Northline's U.S.-based technical team to offer fully financed biomass solutions to users under long-term Energy Supply Agreements. A project pipeline with a capital expenditure of over $100 million in the next few years is already planned.
The second development is a proposed Bio-Park in Taunton, Mass. The park is modeled on a similar campus in Ireland designed by Imperative and partner, J.P. Prendergast. The Bio-Park will incorporate a biomass-fired CHP plant, wood pellet production facility and biopharma facility. A planning application for the Irish campus was recently submitted, while a detailed feasibility study has already been initiated for a $10+ million Taunton, Mass. project.
