Biodiesel Refinery

Renewable Energy Group

Mason City, IA

Interstates performed a complete design-build electrical package to upgrade the existing biodiesel facility for the Renewable Energy Group (REG) located in Mason City, IA. REG purchased the facility and saw the need to upgrade and expand the newly acquired facility. The project scope included electrical engineering, electrical construction, instrumentation, heat trace, and control systems integration. This 30 mmgy biodiesel production facility is located on a three-acre plot outside of Mason City, Iowa. The project included remodeling and upgrading portions of the existing building; adding new sections to the building; adding tanks to the tank farm; adding a cooling tower; adding a new MCC room with corresponding service; rerouting 15kv distribution to allow for construction for one of the building additions and arc flash upgrades.
