According to Ethanol Producer Magazine, Murphy Oil has contracted ICM to retrofit their newly acquired Hereford ethanol plant. Murphy Oil purchased the 100 million gallon per year plant in August after the former owner, Panda Ethanol filed for bankruptcy.
ICM will make modifications to various parts of the facility, including addition of new equipment which will enable the plant to consistently achieve nameplate capacity. Hereford Renewable Energy’s primary goal in retrofitting the plant prior to start-up is to capitalize on the improved operating efficiencies expected from the incorporation of ICM’s industry-leading process technology. ICM’s retrofit of the Hereford Renewable Energy, LLC ethanol plant is anticipated to be completed by the end of the first quarter 2011.
