1,100-MW NatGas Project with Dual Fuel Capability Planned for Ohio

1,100-MW NatGas Project with Dual Fuel Capability Planned for Ohio

Advanced Power subsidiary South Field Energy LLC has announced plans for a $1.1 billion gas-fired power plant near Wellsville, Ohio.

The 1,100-MW facility will use a local supply of natural gas in southern Columbiana County where South Field Energy plans to develop the plant on less than 20 acres.

The project will feature GE’s gas turbine technology with dual-fuel capability.  In the absence of natural gas, the plant can operate on ultra-low sulfur diesel.

EPC firm Bechtel will serve as general contractor.

The project is still in the planning stages while environmental studies are being completed.  Jonathan Winslow, Advanced Power senior vice president for Development, says the company expects to apply for the necessary permits soon.

The South Field Energy facility is Advanced Power’s second such project in northeastern Ohio. A 700-MW natural gas-fired facility is currently under construction near the town of Carrollton.
