ABB will collaborate with ORION subsidiary Energon Renewables which will use efficient "mono Perc" high efficiency solar cells to capture solar rays and convert to power which would be then supplied at 132 kV AC voltage to the main grid in Mongla, 13km aray.
ABB will implement a fully integrated automation and electrical system to monitor and maximize the plant's efficiency and reliability. ABB will also supply the complete electrical solution comprising of transformers, RMUs and 33/132 kV substation along with the SCADA system communicating to the Bangladesh grid via IEC 60870-5-104 communication protocol.

The 56.5 million gpy plant was constructed in 2007 as a joint venture between Ergon Ethanol, Inc. and White Plains, New York-headquartered Bunge North America Inc. The plant had previously halted production in December 2012. Ergon purchased Bunge's ownership in the facility in 2013 and restarted the plant in July 2015. (Source: Ergon Website, PR,

Family-owned EWV owns and operates a 23,000 bpd specialty paraffinic refinery that produces paraffinic base oils, paraffinic bright stocks, waxes, petrolatum, petroleum resins, E10 gasoline and ultra low sulfur diesel.
According to the press release, "EWV blends 10 pct ethanol with 99 pct of the gasoline it produces and will continue to do so, even without a mandate. However, EWV cannot pass through its RIN costs and the detrimental impact imposed by the RFS on EWV's high diesel production is unacceptable and counter to the intent of the RFS program."
As previously reported, "hardship waivers" were intended for refineries producing 75,000 bpd or less and suffered "disproportionate economic hardship" from the costs of RFS compliance. The waiver frees the refineries from an obligation to provide the EPA with biofuels credits proving compliance
