The Mesaba Energy Project is a leading example of the next generation of power generation facilities.
Excelsior Energy will license, construct, own and operate the Mesaba Energy Project, an Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) electric power generating station. Mesaba will revitalize coal's true potential for meeting the need for base load power generation while protecting the environment, putting Minnesotans to work, reducing pressure on scarce natural gas resources, improving trade balances, and minimizing dependence on energy imports using a secure, abundant domestic natural resource.
Qualities of The Mesaba Energy Project:
The Project promises to accelerate nation-wide deployment of advanced clean coal projects to help the industry meet the Department of Energy's aggressive goals for coal-fueled power generation.
