The second piece of equipment for the College's boiler and cogeneration project has arrived.

A crane lowered a 630-kilowatt turbine generator skid and associated electrical equipment into the heating plant Friday.

It's estimated that the back-pressure steam turbine generator will generate 1.65 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, nearly 10 percent of the College's annual electricity consumption.

The project is being funded partially by the College and by a grant from Efficiency Maine.
