Norske Skog Tasman (NST) Paper Mill in Kawerau, New Zealand developed a project to utilise the available geothermal fluids to generate power and save costs for their Mill. NST engaged Beca AMEC during the prefeasibility studies. After completion of these studies, NST selected a 23MW Ormat binary power plant for installation at their Kawerau Mill site. Beca AMEC assisted NST with resource consents, air dispersion modeling and contract preparation. Beca AMEC was also selected by NST to carry out the balance-of-plant design and liaison with the main power plant vendor (Ormat group of companies ) and the geothermal fluid system design and supply company. During the detailed design phase, Beca AMEC provided project engineering management, geotechnical, civil, structural, fire engineering, mechanical and electrical design services as well as Hazard Study services. The construction of the power plant started in January 2012, and it is scheduled to be commissioned early 2013.
