The city of Logansport, Indiana and Logansport Municipal Utilities are seeking to repurpose a coal-fired plant that was closed in January.

LMU was forced to close the 43-MW facility in January after it failed to meet Environmental Protection Agency regulations, WLFI reported.

Logansport Mayor Dave Kitchell said the city and utility are doing what they can to repurpose the plant, with a natural gas turbine retrofit as one option.

However, officials are also considering leasing or selling the plant.

Last year, the city of Logansport had explored other options to retrofit the plant, including burning a mix of coal and pelletized fuel. However, these options did not come to fruition.
