More upgrades needed at Harrisburg, Pa., WTE plant
Feb. 21 — In order to be at peak operating performance, an estimated $ 5 million to $ 10 million in additional capital investment is needed for the Harrisburg (Pa.) Resource Recovery Facility before it can be sold to the highest bidder.
Upgrades include the eight-stage turbine blade that allows the facility to generate more electricity, WHTM-TV Channel 27 in Harrisburg reported.
“Those things are definitely going to happen, and all of them add some level of value, if not potentially additional revenue to the deal,” Marc Kurowski, chairman of the Harrisburg Authority, told the news station. “So, I think they are important to get the right value for the plant.”
Last week, the TV station said, nine companies entered into the bidding process. The Harrisburg Authority will decide on March 5 which are qualified to make a bid.
The Harrisburg waste-to-energy plant has been a money pit in the city since it was built in 1972, with the biggest chunk of investment coming when the city spent $ 125 million to rebuild it in 2003.
