The Jamar Company and APi Construction entered into a joint venture with Boldt Construction for the latest Minnesota Power Air Quality Control project. The work is primarily a retrofit of unit #4 at Minnesota Power's Boswell Energy Center.

"This capstone event of our six-year environmental control effort will transform Boswell 4, the workhorse of our generation fleet, so it continues to provide reliable, safe and affordable electric power to our customers," said Al Hodnik, ALLETE chairman, president and CEO.

The retrofit project will reduce emissions of mercury, particulates and sulfur dioxide, according to Minnesota Power. The system installed incorporates an Alstom NID dry scrubber.

The companies were awarded the $70-million project early 2014 and plans to self-perform more than 520,000 man hours.

Seven different departments from Jamar will be involved including, industrial, commercial, architectural metals and roofing, service/light commercial, specialty fabrication and insulation. The project is 35 percent complete and will run through the fall of 2015, ending with an outage on unit #4.
