Officials with Environmental Power Corporation (EPC) recently announced the company has reached an agreement with Benham Companies, LLC of St. Louis, Missouri. Under the agreement, Microgy, a wholly-owned subsidiary of EPC, will provide design and construction services for a previously announced anaerobic digester project at the JBS/Swift Grand Island, Nebraska beef processing facility. The 235,000 mmbtu/year biogas project will provide biogas to replace a portion of the natural gas currently used at the Grand Island facility. Construction is expected to begin in November.

The agreement also allows for Microgy and Benham to conduct negotiations allowing Benham to design and construct other anaerobic digester projects for Microgy once definitive agreements have been executed for the Grand Island facility.

“We are pleased to have reached this milestone, not only because it represents important progress on the JBS/Swift project, but because Benham brings significant design, engineering and construction experience to Microgy’s team,” said Michael Hvisdos, executive vice president of Microgy. “Benham has completed 12 projects with similar size and scope of the project at Grand Island, and we are very comfortable that they have the capability to execute this project as well as other Microgy projects in our development pipeline.”
