Winstanley deal would fire up wood chip power plant in North Springfield

first_imgLead developer Adam Winstanley of Winstanley Enterprises announced today that the company has entered into a joint venture agreement with Weston Solutions, Inc of Concord, NH, and West Chester, PA, for the development of a 25-35 megawatt woodchip-burning electric generating plant in the North Springfield Industrial Park. The companies filed a petition earlier today for a Certificate of Public Good from the Vermont Public Service Board for the project, which is known as the North Springfield Sustainable Energy Project (NSSEP). The project has been in the planning stages for several years.First announced in 2009, the NSSEP is expected to create more than 600 jobs during its 18 month construction period, 400 of which will be in Windsor and Windham counties. After the plant is commissioned in 2014, it will contribute to some 160 ongoing jobs in Vermont, with a payroll of nearly $9 million annually. State tax revenues are estimated at approximately $4 million during construction and approximately $3 million per year from 2014 on. Approximately $15 million is expected in annual wood purchases from local foresters, roughly two-thirds of which would to come from Vermont sources, and the town of Springfield expects approximately $2 million in net annual increases to its budgeted revenues.A key element of this project that separates it from virtually all other commercial scale renewable energy projects in Vermont is NSSEP’s plan to utilize the plant’s thermal waste to provide low cost heat to the North Springfield Industrial Park tenants though a ‘thermal loop.’  In keeping with Winstanley Enterprises’ long-term strategic commitment to Vermont, NSSEP intends to provide below-market heat to users in the park to retain current tenants and to promote additional development.  ‘Adam Winstanley and his family have done everything right in working with local officials to bring this project from concept to permitting,’ said Bob Flint, executive director of the Springfield Regional Development Corporation. ‘The NSSEP provides both a renewable energy resource and the commercial benefits of a unique thermal energy loop that will attract new industries to the park, making it a hub of economic activity in an area that badly needs a shot of adrenaline.’Winstanley Enterprises is a family-owned company with headquarters in Concord, MA. It has a long and respected track record throughout New England for renovating vacant and underutilized properties. Its developments in Vermont include projects in both Brattleboro and Springfield. In WESTON Winstanley has a partner who shares its commitment to working closely with local officials on projects that are not only economically viable and ecologically sustainable, but also meet the best interests of the community. For more than 50 years, WESTON has worked nationally and globally on a broad range of sustainable projects, from redeveloping contaminated properties to developing community-scaled renewable/clean energy projects.  Among its projects are a coal-to-biomass fuel boiler conversion in Michigan and photovoltaic power systems for the city of Newark, N.J., and on a Superfund site in southwestern Massachusetts.‘WESTON seeks actively to engage community stakeholders throughout the development process to gain their input and advice; and just as importantly, we look to become an active and positive member of the community,’ said Kathleen McGinty, WESTON senior vice president and managing director for strategic growth. ‘Adam Winstanley and his team are good partners for us because they live these values as well. We are impressed by their two years of work in and with community residents and leaders, and we are thrilled to join an effort that delivers solid economic and environmental benefits.’‘Today’s CPG announcement is the culmination of a lot of people’s hard work,’ Winstanley said. ‘I am convinced that this project, which will bring clean power and green jobs to the Springfield area, will be a real boon to the economy in this region and a real asset to Springfield, Windsor County and the state of Vermont. This project makes sense for all of the right reasons, and we are pleased with the support we have gotten from the Springfield community.’The project will take approximately a year and a half to construct after permits are obtained. It is expected that the plant would be commissioned in the middle or last half of 2014. Winstanley Enterprises 12.22.2011last_img read more

I suffered bicep injury against Fury — Wilder

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Joshua: Tyson Fury won’t distract me Deontay Wilder has revealed he suffered a bicep injury during his knockout defeat against Tyson Fury in February.The American was battered from pillar to post as he surrendered his WBC world heavyweight title in Las Vegas after his cornerman Mark Breland threw in the towel in the seventh round.Wilder previously blamed the defeat – the first of his professional career – on the weight of his 40-pound extravagant ring-walk costume, but has now said that he sustained an injury during the fight, which required surgery.Speaking on PBC’s podcast, Wilder said: “Recovery is going well. I’m in therapy, I ended up injuring it during my last fight.“I’ve been there before, but everything is going great with it. I’m just focusing on recovery and getting back to full health. I’m looking forward to once all this coronavirus stuff is over to getting back to camp and getting ready.”Speaking about his prospective third fight with Fury, Wilder added: “In my eyes, I don’t see Fury as a champion. It’s still going. He ain’t the champion yet. We still got one more fight left.“I’m not done yet. This (third fight) is the last final straw right here, as I see it. I am looking forward to showing the world the best of Deontay Wilder.”Wilder, who said he will be able to restart training and sparring in May, added: “A lot of things happened to me that I couldn’t believe was happening to me at that time and at that point of my career. People that know boxing know that wasn’t Deontay Wilder that night. I can’t talk about a lot of things.“But that wasn’t Deontay Wilder that night. You could see from the mask and my reaction, and certain things that I was doing in the ring from the first fight to the second fight.“I wasn’t there from the start, my whole body everything. I felt like a zombie. I was in retreat mode from the first bell. There’s going to be a time and place when I’ll come out. I don’t want to say too much.“I don’t want it to feel like I’m making excuses, I want the people to know I’m coming back better than ever.”The American is set to renew his rivalry with Fury for a third time in October after their initial July date got pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.Wilder intends to bolster his backroom team with two new additions before the trilogy fight and said he will seek advice from former world heavyweight champion George Foreman, who has backed his compatriot to exact revenge on Fury.“It was good talking to George,” Wilder said. “We talked about things from his career, good and bad. Different tricks of the trade. Certain things that he saw in my fight. He wants to show me some methods to strengthen certain parts of my body.” Tags: BOXINGDeontay WilderInjuryTyson Furylast_img read more
