Land Mill Fire Detection System proving its worth at Hoosier Energy's Merom Generating Station in Southern Indiana

Babcock Power recently carried out an upgrade to the six coal mills at Merom Station. To ensure safe operation of the mills, Babcock and Hoosier installed a total of 18 Land Mill Fire analyzers to monitor their operation and provide early warning of abnormal and potentially-dangerous conditions. The analyzers have been operating successfully since they were commissioned in late May.

Hoosier From Wikipedia: Hoosier is the official term for a resident of the US State of Indiana. Although residents of most US states typically adopt a derivative of the state name, e.g., Indianan or Indianian, natives of Indiana never use these. The State of Indiana adopted the nickname "Hoosier State" more than 150 years ago.The etymology of hoosier is unknown. There are many suggestions for the derivation of the word, but none is universally accepted. Jacob Piatt Dunn, longtime secretary of the Indiana Historical Society, noted that "hoosier" was frequently used in many parts of the Southern USA in the 19th century for woodsmen or rough hill people. He traced the word back to "hoozer," from the Cumbrian dialect of England. This derives from the Anglo-Saxon "hoo", meaning high or hill. In Cumberland, "hoozer" meant anything unusually large, such as a hill.
