Corn Plus

Winnebago, MN | Energy

Overview

ISG designed a number of major capital improvements for Corn Plus that enabled the ethanol producer to enhance its operations.


Opportunity

As one of the largest ethanol plants in Minnesota, Corn Plus wanted to increase its production as an industry leader with a series of improvements, including the implementation of rail systems.

Solution

Producing 49 million gallons of ethanol annually makes this one of the largest plants in the State of Minnesota. This producer expects continued growth and intends to continue to lead the industry in value-added ethanol production. In order to accomplish this, sound engineering design services were necessary. Several capital improvements performed for this client exemplify an extensive diversity of services. Projects included an ash pellet plant addition, railroad spur design, rail car loading containment, containment berm, pond tiling and lining, flare and tank foundations, fluid bed stack, compressor and pump enclosure, and concrete paving within the facility. With these improvements, the plant is now in the best possible position to achieve sustainable positive results.
