Gemma Power Systems said on Aug. 4 that it has completed initial synchronization of a 49.9-MW, biomass-fired project in Texas.
The Woodville Renewable Power Project is located at Woodville, Texas, and is being constructed by Gemma for East Texas Electric Power Cooperative. The initial synchronization is with the Midcontinent ISO grid.
The fuel for the new plant is chipped forest waste, which began moving to the facility in May. Plant construction began in 2012 and the facility is due for commercial operation later this year.
Gemma is an engineering, procurement and construction subsidiary of Argan Inc. (NYSE: AGX).
