Over the past five years, NTH has become an extension of Dearborn Industrial Generation (DIG)’s Environmental, Health, and Safety Manager’s resources. We continue to serve as the go-to source for resolving complicated environmental and safety issues.
Project History CMS Energy originally retained NTH Consultants to develop a complicated air use permit application at the DIG site in Dearborn. The fast-tracked application included:
3 new gas fired utility turbines
3 blast furnace gas/natural gas fired utility boilers
Off-site blast furnace gas flares
Temporary off-site boilers to provide steam until DIG was online
This equipment supplements local utility demands and serves as a replacement to the aging Rouge Steel Powerhouse.
As the project progressed, the scope grew to include water discharge permitting, stack testing, and pollution prevention plans for both Storm Water and for Oil and Chemical Storage. NTH and DIG worked with Rouge Steel, Ford Motor Company, and Double Eagle Steel Company, to address the complex water supply and discharge system at the Rouge Complex.
Ongoing Project Work Currently, NTH is assisting DIG by:
Preparing annual compliance reports for DIG, SARA, TRI, and AWR
Performing compliance stack testing and performance testing
Recommending solutions for items out of compliance with state or federal regulations
