Wyoming coal-fired plant granted another extension to begin construction

The Wyoming Industrial Siting Council granted another extension to Two Elk Power Co. for the construction commencement date of a waste coal- and biomass-fired power plant in the Powder River Basin coal mining district, according to a report from WyoFile.

According to the report, the $800 million power plant has been delayed for around 17 years, with the company listing reasons for the delays varying from the collapse of Enron in 2001, legal challenges and the economic recession of 2008.

Although the six-member council approved an amended construction schedule that would have construction begin in January 2014, WyoFile reports the council has doubts the company will meet with schedule. One council member who supported the extension stated he has not heard anything to indicate the company would meet the new commencement date.
