IMG Midstream plans to construct a 20-MW gas-fired power plant in Pennsylvania.

Bayles Energy LLC, a subsidiary of IMG, was granted approval for the development from the Greene County Planning Commission, according to the Observer-Reporter.

The plant will be constructed near Garards Fort and use locally-sourced natural gas. The company expects the plant to be operational by 2018.

IMG Midstream develops, owns and operates small-scale natural gas plants.

“Small-scale distributed generation plants have proven to be economically beneficial to the local grid,” said Kristi Gittins, a spokeswoman for IMG. “They are a quick start resource with the ability to quickly respond during peak load and other unexpected needs for power on short notice, like a generator outage or unexpected spike in energy demand.”

The remotely-operated plant is expected to produce electricity 60 to 80 percent of the time based on seasonal power fluctuations and market needs.
