Construction Resumes on G.I. Power Plant Project

Posted: Updated:

Work on a $42 million project at Grand Island's power plant has resumed after a winter break.

Last fall crews did dirt work and placed structural steel.

G.I. got a head start installing a dry scrubber system to comply with new EPA regulations, expected to take effect next year.

Utilities Department head Tim Luchsinger hopes they've beat the construction rush as plants across the country work to meet the standards.

"They'll begin construction in earnest now. They're going to get more equipment in here and really start attacking the project," said Luchsinger. "We hope to have it done, most of the equipment installed and running by the fall of this year."

Luchsinger said the project should improve emissions and extend the life of the plant.
