As we published in the latest edition of The Insulators Union Journal, members of HFIAW Local 33 played a major role in the completion of the Plainfield Renewable Energy (PRE) power plant project that is now providing renewable biomass energy in Plainfield, Connecticut.
The PRE plant is the largest Class 1 facility in Connecticut and produces nearly 15 percent of the renewable energy the state is legally required to produce under current rules and regulations.
The renewable biomass energy power plant achieved commercial operation a little more than a year ago, and Local 33 is proud to have played a substantial role in the building of the plant. Working for Atlantic Contracting and Specialties, LLC, Local 33 helped complete the massive, $225 million project on time and on budget.
Construction of the facility, located just 11 miles west of the Rhode Island border, also created about 400 new jobs. You can read the full story in the spring 2015 edition of The Journal.
