North Dakota State University Heating Plant Boiler Replacement

KFI was contracted to provide mechanical and electrical design services for the replacement of an essential boiler within North Dakota State University’s (NDSU) central heating plant. The problematic boiler had been experiencing numerous mechanical issues including substantial leakage for several years leading up to its replacement. The project included the removal and the installation of a new 100,000 pound per hour water tube boiler. It was necessary for the new boiler to serve as a “stand-alone” from the other existing systems.

Canola Processing Plant

A group of farmers and other businessmen in rural Minnesota saw a way to bring jobs and opportunity to their local area and needed a sophisticated engineering partner to make it a reality. In the spring of 2012, a new canola refining plant began operations near Hallock, MN. Years in the making and with a total construction cost of $168 million, the plant employs about 50 people and produces over 280 million pounds of high value, food grade canola oil and 195,000 tons of canola meal annually.

Ethanol Fuel Plant

Heartland Corn Products (HCP) looked to expand their ethanol production in an economical and expedited manner in order to capitalize on the market conditions at the time. To facilitate this expansion in ethanol production, KFI designed an additional ethanol plant next to HCP’s existing plant in Winthrop, MN. This 50 million gallon per year plant was completed within the tight time constraints, and met the budget requirements.
