The city council of Fremont, Neb. approved a $3.747 million contract with Clyde Bergemann Power Group Americas Inc. for work at the Lon D. Wright Power Plant Tuesday, according to a report from the Fremont Tribune.
Clyde Bergemann will repair and refurbish the electrostatic precipitator for the 90 MW coal-fired Unit 8 at the plant, according to the report. Although council members had been told previously that workers were nursing the equipment along, the repairs were delayed until direction became clear on what environmental upgrades would be required by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations.
The Tribune stated the city council and Board of Public Works approved a $46.758 million contract last month with Fagen Inc. to bring the plant into compliance with new EPA codes.
The Lon D. Wright Power Plant is owned and operated by the city of Fremont.
