reimbursement of expenses
Steelhead Energy Company, LLC, Mt. Horeb, WI,
an estimated $2,5000,000.
The University will issue a purchase order to reimburse expenes for the Southern Illinois Clean Energy Center for the development of a front end engineering and design package for a 545 MW integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plant and a methanation plant that will produce 95 million standard cubic feet of substitute natural gas located at the mouth of a new underground coal mine in the Johnson City area. The project meets the selction criteria of the Clean Coal Review Board program and includes substantial cost sharing from another funding source. The project cost has been negotiated and is substantially lower than the proposed amount. The advanced technology selected for support represents a one-of-a-kind project that is unique in terms of the integration of technology and the physical locations of the subsequent commercial developments. The failure to declare this Sole Source may bar further development of the project which would create both temporary and permanent mining and construction jobs in Williamson/Franklin County Illinois.
