In order to reduce and fix long-term operating cost for energy, the Northern Maine Medical Center located in Fort Kent, installed a biomass gasification system to generate thermal energy in the form of steam for heating, and process needs throughout the facility.
The biomass system reduces the hospital’s dependency on fossil fuel, minimizes their carbon foot print and enhances the local economy by purchasing locally sourced and produced biomass fuel.
Both our VP of Engineering, Brad Noviski, and our VP of Innovation, John Tomasi, were involved in these projects which highlight the expertise and experience they bring to Biotech Energy.”
