Troutdale Energy Center sent a brief Jan. 26 letter to the Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council that said the company is dropping pursuit of an approval for a 652 MW, gas-fired project.

"Per our recent discussion, this letter serves as formal notification to the Oregon Energy Facility Siting Council and the Oregon Department of Energy that Troutdale Energy Center, hereby withdraws its Application for Site Certificate for the Troutdale Energy Center from further consideration by the Council and the Department," said the letter. "We will be directing our legal counsel to file a motion in the contested case to dismiss the contested case as moot and/or take any other steps required to effectuate the withdrawal of the Application."

Troutdale Energy Center had proposed to construct and operate a combined cycle and simple cycle turbine plant with natural gas as the primary fuel and No. 2 fuel oil as the back-up fuel. Power production was to be 652 MW to 701 MW. The company had kicked off the approval process with a November 2011 notice of intent filed with the council.

The facility was to be located on Lot 3 in the Port of Portland-owned Troutdale Reynolds Industrial Park in the city of Troutdale, Oregon. The applicant proposed a 230-kV transmission line from the facility switchyard to the point of intersection with one of three existing substations.

Troutdale Energy Center is a unit of Development Partners Funding I.
