Gevo Project

Outside view of an energy and chemical facility.

Tapping into a renewable natural gas project for the first time, Interstates recently worked with Gevo to build a central biogas purification site and connect it to three different dairies in Northwest Iowa. Interstates provided Gevo with power distribution, PLC design and construction, programming, instrumentation, and heat trace work.

Key Scope Components

  • Interstates installed an advanced controls automation which means Gevo can now check levels and tweak processes from a centralized dashboard.
  • Interstates also hard-wired permissives between the vendor control systems and the main plant, which allows the facilities to operate even if communication is lost between two control systems.
  • Interstates used an integrated approach with electrical, instrumentation, engineering, and controls allowed for quicker problem-solving to keep Gevo’s project progressing.
  • Interstates provided a start-up expert that helped Gevo conquer any issues with commissioning and eased the transition to a fully operational plant.
