Talen Energy Rethinks Co-Firing Capabilities at Montour


By Editors of Power Engineering

Talen Energy has announced it will re-evaluate plans to add natural gas co-firing capabilities at the coal-fired Montour plant.

The announcement, which came with Talen Energy’s latest quarterly report, indicated the delay would allow the company to consider operating experience and results from Brunner Island Unit 3, which is in the process of having co-firing capabilities added.

As a result, there’s now no current timetable for finishing the Montour project. The plans were originally announced in June.

Talen Energy is currently in the process of merging with affiliates of private investment firm Riverstone Holdings LLC. The merger is expected to close by the end of the year.
