New natural gas fired power plant planned in Ohio

Advanced Power North America is planning a 700 MW natural gas-fired plant in Carroll County, Ohio, according to a report from CantonRep.com. Plans for the $800 million Carroll County Energy project were announced Tuesday.

According to the report, the decision to locate the plant in Carroll County was based on nearby transmission lines and its location to the Tennessee Gas Pipeline along with current plans to retire 5,800 MW of coal-fired power capacity in Ohio by the end of 2015. The company is actively developing two other power plants in New York and Massachusetts and has five plants in development in central and western Europe.

The facility will need approval by the Ohio Power Siting board, which can take up to a year, and would take up to three years to build after approval, CantonRep.com reported.
