Contractors chosen for conversion of UW coal plant
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
The Boldt Co. of Appleton and British consulting firm AMEC have been chosen as the engineering and construction contractors for the $250 million conversion of the coal-fired power plant on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus to burn natural gas and biomass.
The Boldt-AMEC team was selected from among six bidding teams in a competitive process launched in March, according to the state Department of Administration. A final contract is expected to be negotiated within four weeks, said Emily Winecke, an agency spokeswoman. The Charter Street plant provides heating for the UW campus.
The state is converting it to biomass and natural gas as part of a settlement of a Sierra Club lawsuit claiming the plant violated air pollution laws.
