NTE Energy to build natural gas plant in Ohio

NTE Energy plans to build a 500-MW natural gas combined cycle power plant in Middletown, Ohio.

If approved by regulators, the Middletown Energy Center would use an M501JAC combustion turbine from Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas. The combined cycle technology captures exhaust heat from the gas turbine to produce steam, which is used in a steam turbine to generate additional electricity.

The plant will generate 60 percent fewer emissions than conventional power plants, according to the company.

The $500 million project would generate enough power for about 400,000 homes. In addition, the project would create up to 400 jobs at the peak of construction. Officials expect to break ground on the project in 2015 and hope to begin commercial operation in 2018.
