Jim Geist, operations manager for Great Western Ethanol, said it plans to break ground on the plant, located near Weld County roads 33 and 394 by early March.Once construction is under way, it could take between 18-24 months to complete the plant, which is projected to be operational by the third quarter of 2009."This is big for the region and for the state," Geist said."As for the country, we are helping to meet the energy needs."In the year-and-a-half period in which Great Western had to go back to the drawing board and redesign the plant to meet its new production size, Evans officials have worked closely to facilitate the process.Geist said the city was a key part of the redesign, and getting everything approved on time.

"We started out in March '04 as a 54-million-gallon facility," Jim Geist, operations manager for Great Western Ethanol, told the council at a work session Tuesday.Geist reassured members that the company is looking at starting construction next spring and completing it by fall of 2008."Ethanol industry has changed dramatically in the last two years," Geist said."There are a lot of plants being built in the country and worldwide and, unfortunately, the contractors and materials are harder to come by. ...We want to be able to do the right thing and build a proper facility that will be here for a long time."Geist said the facility is planning on staying for at least 20 years in Evans as he reassured council members that everything is still moving forward."We're on the fast track compared to last year," Geist said."We have a general contractor, a process technology company and we recently made a very large six-digit payment to the contractor."Geist answered questions about the water wells, silos, the proposed fire station and train traffic.He said nothing will change to the roadways, railways or the environmental changes in the plans.But until then, it's a waiting game."At this point, we're waiting on a whole lot of people," he said.
