The Industrial team at Summit Fire Protection has a current project underway at the Sierra BioFuels Plant located in Storey County Nevada. The Industrial project at Sierra BioFuels turns waste into energy by using municipal garbage waste and turning it into fuel. Once this project is completed, the plant is expected to process approximately 175,000 tons of MSW feedstock annually in order to turn it into 11 million gallons per year of renewable synthetic crude oil. This oil will then be processed by Marathon Petroleum into transportation fuel. https://fulcrum-bioenergy.com/facilities/
The work performed includes:
- Underground Fire Water Piping System
- Above Grade Fire Protection Systems (Types: Wet, Dry, Deluge & Foam Systems)
- Diesel Fire Pump System
- Fire Pump Building and Valve Shed Enclosures
- Automatic Fire Water Cannon Systems
- Site Wide Fire Alarm System
This facility is the first of its kind to be built in the United States based on the size and capacity. The project started in March 2019 with estimated completion in late fall of 2020. Take a look at the video from Fulcrum’s Sierra BioFuels Plant to learn more.
