Project facts

Project Type: Commercial Ethanol

Client: Delta-T Corporation

Owner: Cascade Grain Products, LLC

Capacity: 108 million gallons per year

Start-up: 2nd Quarter 2008

Delta-T Corporation has undertaken a new greenfield, corn dry mill ethanol plant in Oregon, USA that has the capacity to produce 108 million gallons per year of un-denatured fuel grade ethanol and 350,000 tons per year of dried grains with solubles (DDGS).

Pöyry's services to Delta-T included complete detail engineering and construction services for all process areas except the grain and DDGS handling systems. Process design was understaken by Delta-T.

A major tool used for the Clatskanie project was the Bentley 3D modelling software. The approach was successfully used to minimise interferences as well as to achieve interdisciplinary co-ordination.
