|Mid-Georgia Cogeneration Plant|
Mid-Georgia Cogeneration Plant (MGC) is a 300MW dual fuel fired combined cycle power plant located in the City of Kathleen, approximately 100 miles south of Atlanta, Georgia. MGC sells electric power to Georgia Power Company under a long-term power purchase agreement, and sells steam to Frito-Lay, Inc. for use in an adjacent food processing plant.
MGC went into commercial operation in 1998. It is comprised of two Siemens-Westinghouse 501D5A combustion turbines equipped with dry low NOx combustors capable firing natural gas or No. 2 fuel oil. The project utilizes two Nooter-Erikson heat recovery steam generators, and a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries condensing steam turbine.
Perennial Power owns 100 percent interest in MGC and provides asset management and operational services.
|Hermiston Generating Plant|
|Hermiston Generating Plant (HGP) is located in
northeastern Oregon, nine miles south of the Columbia River. HGP is a 474 megawatt natural gas fueled power plant that provides power for nearly 500,000
households in the Pacific Northwest. HGP is a highly
reliable modern power plant that provides long-term
energy and electric capacity to PacifiCorp, who is our
co-owner and the fuel supplier to the facility. The plant
also provides steam to Lamb-Weston's adjacent
potato processing plant.
HGP was built by Bechtel for U.S. Generating Company in 1996. The plant is based on two General Electric
Perennial Power owns 50 percent interest in HGP and is the plant's manager and operator. HGP has been recognized by the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Division (OR-OSHA) for the plant's exceptional
|American Bituminous Power Partners|
|Perennial Power Holdings owns a 40% interest in the
Grant Town project, an 80 megawatt waste coal power facility located near Grant Town in West Virginia.
Perennial Power owns this project jointly with Edison Mission Energy who owns 50%, American Power
Investors with 9.5% ownership, and American Hydro
Power Company at 0.5%. The facility is operated by
Edison Mission Energy. Power generated at this facility
is sold to Allegheny Power Systems under a long term power sales contract.
|The Grant Town Power Plant started commercial operation in 1993. The facility utilizes circulating fluidized
bed (CFB) boiler technology to burn waste coal. The plant's CFB Boilers allow efficient combustion with
minimal environmental impact. American Bituminous recovers waste coal and pond fines from former mine operations. The Grant Town project provides a market for waste coal, which is a low-energy fuel source traditionally discarded by the coal mining industry. Older coal power plants could not efficiently handle waste
coal as a primary energy source. CFB technology was developed to efficiently burn the low-energy coal and
still meet current environmental standards and is inherently cleaner than conventional coal-fired generation.
