The Spiritwood Energy Park is a 551-acre industrial park located approximately 10 miles east of Jamestown, ND and just south of Spiritwood, ND. Cargill Malt and Spiritwood Station combined heat and power plant are just to the east of this energy park.
The energy park is ideal because of its:
- Location: 500 plus acres of prime industrial development land
- Services: Abundant water and wastewater, affordable utilities, heavy power and steam
- Great local & state incentives
Stutsman County and Spiritwood Township have actively developed engineering plans to upgrade the access roads from Interstate 94 to the site to allow for 105,000-pound loads. The full rail loop (shown in blue) gives tenants of Spiritwood Energy Park the ability to utilize unit trains to transport their products and feedstocks and enhances transportation efficiency within the energy park.
Spiritwood Energy Park Association manages the Energy Park. The association provides common-use transportation infrastructure, industrial lots, property management and value-added services on a fee-for-service basis to attract new businesses to Spiritwood Energy Park. Spiritwood Energy Park Association will be majority owned and operated by Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corporation (JSDC) with Great River Energy being the minority owner. Spiritwood Energy Park Association will invest in the road and rail infrastructure within Spiritwood Energy Park that will benefit all tenants in the energy park.
The project site is of critical strategic significance due to its proximity to utilities, transportation and markets.
Spiritwood Energy Park is an attractive location for agricultural or industrial processing businesses seeking strong energy and transportation infrastructure. JSDC is leading the initiative to invite other businesses to Spiritwood Energy Park.
Our Mission: to provide infrastructure, management and governance to Spiritwood Energy Park for the economic benefit of the region.
Currently, Spiritwood Energy Park Association is working with two initial tenants:
Dakota Spirit AgEnergy
Our Vision: to be a fully developed and profitable energy park.
plans to begin construction at the Spiritwood Energy Park spring of 2013. This 65 million-gallon-per year biorefinery will produce ethanol, distillers grains and fuel-grade corn oil. The ethanol biorefinery will utilize steam from Spiritwood Station for its operations. Future growth opportunities for the biorefinery are emerging as well with cellulosic, isobutanol and other biofuel technologies.
In addition to Dakota Spirit AgEnergy, CHS announced its proposed 2,200 tons per day (TPD) ammonia plant to be built at Spiritwood Energy Park. Preliminary engineering is underway. The 200-acre facility will leverage the planned Spiritwood Energy Park Association rail infrastructure and require 15 to 20 MW of electrical service. Overall design, permitting and construction schedule plans for a 2016 start up. CHS selection of the Spiritwood Energy Park site reinforces the value of the infrastructure, location and amenities that Spiritwood Energy Park offers to agricultural and industrial customers.
