GreenHunter Energy is acquiring more than 7 MW of biodiesel-powered electrical generators. The energy company, based in Grapevine, Texas, says the generators will come form a third party company in Panama City, Panama.
The power plant is skid mounted and has a Tier I EPA certification and will operate under the TCEQ and all other local and state regulatory requirements. The power plant is essentially new with only one unit previously fired for less than one hour. The power plant is in the process of being boarded on a ship, after being thoroughly inspected, and will be transported to the Company’s new 105 million gallon per year biodiesel refinery located at the Houston Ship Channel. GreenHunter Energy operating personnel will test the power plant units for the following potential opportunities:

— The wind generated electricity market as an approach to improve the
capacity factor associated with intermittent wind power
— For additional capacity at biomass powered electrical plants
— As a stand alone peaking power plant due to its rapid electrical
GreenHunter Energy describes itself as a company dedicated to developing renewable energy options such as wind, solar, biofuels and biomass power plants.
