Talen Energy to Co-Fire Power Plant With Coal & Natural Gas


Talen Energy Corp. (NYSE: TLN) plans to co-fire a power plant in Pennsylvania with natural gas and coal.

Talen completed a feasibility assessment to install boiler modifications to enable a dual-fuel capability at the 1,500-MW coal-fired Montour power plant. Engineering and design work are already underway. Based on obtaining all necessary permitting and regulatory approval, the completion date is set for second quarter of 2018.

The company is in the process of selecting a qualified third party to build, own and operate a 15-mile lateral pipeline to bring natural gas to the plant. Plant modifications are expected to cost $70 million with additional pipeline expenses and payments to be made to the third party building the pipeline and regulating and metering station.
