Boswell Project Groundbreaking
Boswell Project Groundbreaking

COHASSET, MN (KDAL) - Minnesota Power broke ground on Thursday for a major construction project that will reduce emissions at the company's coal fired Boswell plant.  The project would reduce mercury emissions by 90 percent and would also reduce levels of particulates and sulfur at the plant that is capable of producing 585 megawatts of electricity.  Minnesota Power says the project will also ensure a diverse fuel mix of renewables, coal and natural gas over the coming years.
