A New Generation of Power
for a New Millennium©
Smith Cogeneration and its affiliated group of companies have developed and operated projects over the past 20 years that seek to improve economic and energy efficiency in various industries with environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions. The Smith Cogeneration family of companies began its path with the formation of Smith Cogeneration, Inc. in April 1984 to pursue development of various electricity and heat cogeneration projects.
Smith Cogeneration has a proven record of accomplishment from development through financing, construction, and commercial operation of large projects, as demonstrated by the success of the 120 MW PowerSmith Cogeneration Project, the first independent cogeneration project in Oklahoma, and the 185 MW Smith/Enron project in the Dominican Republic, the world’s first combined-cycle combustion turbine power plant to be mounted on a floating platform.
Apart from electric power generation, the Smith Cogeneration family of companies also include companies developing a Liquefied Natural Gas terminal in Downeast Maine, a super-efficient high-speed boat hull design, and a new bloodline of Angus cattle that uses far fewer natural resources to create a tender, tasty, and yet far more healthy steak.
Smith Cogeneration continues to apply its strict values in efficiency and environmental cleanliness to its current developments throughout the United States, and abroad in Latin America, Asia, and India.
Smith Cogeneration’s experience and success in developing projects is demonstrated by its PowerSmith project providing reliable, low-cost power and a valuable steam byproduct with an availability factor of greater than 95% for over fifteen years. In addition to its knowledge and expertise in the critical areas of power sales and fuel supply, Smith Cogeneration is skilled in negotiating contracts for equipment supply, engineering and construction, operation and maintenance, equity funding, and non-recourse construction and term debt. Smith Cogeneration is also experienced in the area of obtaining government permits and complying with insurance requirements.
