ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Constellation is in the process of testing the bio-mass plant next to Proctor and Gamble.

It won't be long before 50-MEGAWATT bio-mass fueled plant is complete. 

Folks at Constellation said if all goes well it will be done mid-summer. 

The testing that's happening right now should be completed by the end of the week. 

The 200 million dollar plant will be owned and operated by Constellation, an energy company based out of Baltimore.

P&G is helping with the developing of the plant. 

The plant will use scrap wood to supply the steam P&G needs to make paper towels and toilet paper. 

It will also generate electricity for Georgia Power and steam electricity for a generator at the Marine Base in Albany. 

Right now, folks at Constellation are cleaning the main steam piping for the plant by testing condensed water.
