Coal Handling System

Coal handling system

Pillowtex Corporation – Kannapolis, North Carolina

Due to an environmental agency compliance order, Pillowtex was facing
significant capital expenditures to replace the particulate removal
system in its coal-fired central steam/electric plant. Pillowtex wanted to
find a way to preserve its capital for more strategic areas of its business.  Peregrine Energy purchased the central steam facility from Pillowtex (formerly Fieldcrest Cannon) in February 1996 and implemented over $8 million in capital improvements, including a new coal handling system, through a turnkey, design/build, own/operate structure.
