Vancouver, BC – Biomass Secure Power is obtaining the necessary approvals to build a 10-megawatt co-generation plant in Abbotsford, BC.  The plant will be constructed on property owned by a greenhouse operator who has signed a 20-year lease to allow co-generation operations on the site.  The greenhouse has also agreed to purchase hot water heat and CO2 on a fixed contract price.  A second greenhouse located nearby is also interested in purchasing hot water heat. 

The electricity produced at this site will be sold to BC Hydro under its Standing Offer Program.  The fuel will be whole trees that have been destroyed by the mountain pine beetle; these trees must be removed to reduce the danger of forest fire.  The plant is expected to commence operations in late 2010.
