Schumer: Plant overdueSenator hits red tape that's holding up power plant at Watervliet Arsenal
By Larry Rulison Albany Times-Union (NY) January 9, 2012WATERVLIET - U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer came to the gates of Watervliet Arsenal Monday demanding that the Army cut through the red tape and pave the way for a new power plant at the site.
"It's Washington bureaucracy at its worst," Schumer said.Three years ago, the nonprofit Arsenal Business & Technology Partnership was awarded the right to redevelop 65 acres at the site through the Army's long-term lease program. One of the major pieces of that plan is construction of a new biomass-fed power plant that would also generate steam for the Army's cannon and weapons manufacturing operations.
Partnership officials say the cogeneration plant is critical to support new high-tech tenants for the site - especially a data processing center that would draw a huge amount of power. The partnership has already attracted dozens of tenants employing about 300 people to a small number of available buildings. The additional land it was awarded would allow it to become even more creative in its marketing efforts.
