Temp-Pro, a leading manufacturer of industrial temperature sensing devices is actively working with Georgia Renewable Power in two project sites, supplying temperature measurement products for two biomass power plants.
Once online, these biomass power plants located near the Atlanta area will generate 66 Megawatts (MW) to power over 120,000 homes and businesses in the local communities of Madison and Franklin in Central Georgia.
Biomass is a largely underused renewable energy source in many locations throughout the U.S. where agricultural and livestock economies thrive—and biomass power plants can convert organic matter into biogas to generate “green” energy.
Temp-Pro’s involvement in these two Georgia project sites include the installation of temperature measurement devices in a variety of equipment, including boilers, turbines, ESP, cooling towers, ash systems, stacks, wood yards, and dryer systems.
Some of the specific temperature devices supplied by Temp-Pro include instrumentation for biomass grate fired boilers, as well as pressure gauges, thermometers, and thermocouples for a variety of applications.
Working on two different sites—brownfield and greenfield projects—Temp-Pro is showcasing its versatility in serving the needs of customers with diverse scopes and site conditions.
“We are excited to be collaborating with Georgia Renewable Power in these remarkable renewable energy projects,” said Neal Messier, Director of Commercial Sales at Temp-Pro. “Power generation engineering is among our core competencies and we are known for delivering excellence in temperature measurement devices.”
Since biomass power plants require a variety of organic material as fuel, this project has the potential to generate additional revenue from local farmers and companies that produce waste or byproducts from existing agricultural or livestock operations.
“Temp-Pro’s temperature sensors are a perfect match for the Renewable Energy industry, allowing our customers to control and measure the most extreme temperature conditions in their energy generation equipment,” added Mr. Messier.
It should be noted that both projects are still under construction and expected to go online and be fully operational by mid-2019. During that time, Temp-Pro will continue to oversee their development until the projects are completed.
Temp-Pro is a leading manufacturer of temperature sensing equipment for industrial and commercial applications based in Northampton, MA.
