STAMP Water Line Construction Advances Site Readiness
BATAVIA, NY – The anticipated completion of a $2 million infrastructure project this summer, water capacity will increase to over 1 million gallons per day at the 1,250-acre Western New York Science & Technology Advanced Manufacturing Park mega site in Genesee County.
“Every infrastructure milestone adds to the tremendous momentum behind STAMP. Our ability to deliver low-cost, 100% renewable power, and utility infrastructure aligned with project timelines and capacities, is driving even greater interest from site selectors and companies looking to locate in Genesee County,” said Genesee County Economic Development Center President and CEO Steve Hyde.
STAMP’s development is advancing with significant infrastructure design, engineering, and construction milestones. The mega site is already designed and permitted for the construction of over 6 million square feet of advanced manufacturing facility space.
The water infrastructure project includes the installation of new high-capacity water lines that will connect with previously extended infrastructure on New York State Route 77 that runs along the STAMP site.
The water line project is supported by New York State, and is aligned with investments by Genesee County and the towns of Alabama and Pembroke to expand infrastructure for economic and community growth. Morsch Pipeline in Avon, NY serves as the lead contractor on the project.
In February, Plug Power Inc. announced it plans to begin construction of North America’s largest green hydrogen production facility at STAMP. Plug Power’s $290 million proposed facility and electric substation investment further expands access to high-capacity, flexible infrastructure on parcels ranging from 30 acres to over 650 acres, Hyde said.
“Partnering with an industry leader like Plug Power is another significant asset available at STAMP to grow the renewable and advanced manufacturing sectors which will transform our regional economy for generations,” Hyde said.
