Canadian engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor TWD Technologies has been selected by Great Lakes Biodiesel to support the construction of one of Canada’s largest biodiesel plants.
The facility is located in Welland, Ontario, and will produce 170 million litres of biodiesel annually.
It will utilise vegetable oils such as canola and soybean as a primary feedstock, with the plant expected to be operational in the third quarter.
Scott Wilson, principal at TWD, said, ‘We are thrilled to be part of a project that will help improve Canada’s fuel supply. Biodiesel is a renewable fuel that is certain to be a key part of the world’s energy supply solution.’
Barry Kramble, CEO of Great Lakes Biodiesel, added, ‘Great Lakes Biodiesel is proud to be working with TWD and other highly skilled workers in the Niagara region to complete the plant.
‘We believe TWD brings invaluable experience, having worked on other large refinery projects to oversee the construction completion of our plant.’
