Construction of a new 475-megawatt (MW) natural gas-fired power plant will soon begin at a facility in Middleton, Ohio, this according to news released today by Gemma Power Systems (GPS). The company announced that it has received Interim Notice to Proceed (INTP) to commence activities under an Engineering, Procurement and Construction Services (EPC) contract with NTE Ohio LLC, an affiliate of NTE Energy, to begin construction of the new plant.

The Ohio project will feature an advanced Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas (MHPSA) M501GAC combustion turbine generator, a Vogt Power International supplementary-fired heat recovery steam generator and a Toshiba America Energy Systems steam turbine generator. It is one of two similar projects which GPS is contracted to perform for NTE; the second project is located in Kings Mountain, NC for NTE Carolinas LLC.

The Middletown Energy Center project has a contract value of approximately $300 million and is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2018. The Kings Mountain Energy Center project is anticipated to be released in September and will be complete later in 2018.

The Middletown Energy Center project will employ 300 craft workers at the peak of construction. Approximately 25-30 full time employees will be required to operate the facility when it is completed.
