DENVER (AP) - A federal court jury ruled the owners of Gypsum’s biomass plant failed to pay the company that built it.

The Summit Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2qYExh7 ) Wellons won a $10.84 million verdict Monday against biomass plant owner-operator Eagle Valley Clean Energy in a civil lawsuit that has gone on for more than a year.

Wellons attorney Steve Leatham says the company will seek approximately $7 million in interest.

Eagle Valley Clean Energy received nothing in its counter suit. The company was seeking more than $19 million.

Eagle Valley Clean Energy says the biomass plant will continue to operate.

The jury ruled that Wellons did not breach the contract and Wellons was not negligent and would not pay for the alleged repairs.

Eagle Valley Clean Energy expects to spend $16 million in repairs.
