Biomass Power Plant Already Puts 75 to Work

From the Appleton (WI) Post-Crescent:

Biomass plant construction goes full steam ahead
Boldt leads construction of $255 million Rothschild facility

ROTHSCHILD — A $255 million biomass power plant under construction in Rothschild already has put more than 75 people to work full time, providing them with family-sustaining wages, officials said.

The workers — mostly general laborers, iron workers and carpenters — have spent recent months pouring concrete and erecting the 11-story steel frame for a building that ultimately will house the plant’s boiler, said Randy DeMeuse, vice president of operations for The Boldt Co., the Appleton-based firm overseeing construction.
