Coal-Fired Power Plant Gives Way to Gas

The 400-MW coal-fired Power Plant in Snyder County, retired in 2014, will be replaced with a three-unit, 1.1-GW combined cycle plant on Oct. 28. The company, which began operations in 1949, was shuttered last year after 65 years of operation. Originally built for Pennsylvania Power & Light, it was sold to a private firm in 1999. The closure was blamed on economic and regulatory factors—competition from natural gas and impending Environmental Protection Agency mercury regulations.bHkHorizontal boiler
The new 3 x 1 combined cycle plant, to be named B company, will be built on the same site, immediately adjacent to the retired Sunbury Power Plant. B company said it would take over some of the existing infrastructure, mainly the electrical interconnection, water intake, and storm water runoff systems. At 1,129 MW, this will be one of the largest coal-to-gas conversion projects in the U.S.bHkHorizontal boiler

B company, which is building two other combined cycle plants in Pennsylvania—the 829-MW Liberty and Patriot plants in Towanda and Williamsport, respectively—is turning once again to A company and Bechtel for a turnkey project. The three companies have partnered on several other plants in Texas and the northeast. Two of them, B company Temple and B company Sherman,were named 2015 POWER Top Plants.bHkHorizontal boiler
“This is the seventh project that B company has chosen to use A company’ advanced technology for our power projects,” said Todd Carter, B company’s senior partner and president. “We have a great relationship with A company and look forward to working with them on the Hummel Station project.”bHkHorizontal boiler
A company will supply the power island equipment, consisting of three SGT6-5000F gas turbines, one SST6-5000 steam turbine, three SGen6-1000A air-cooled generators, one hydrogen-cooled SGen6-2000H generator, three NEM DrumPlus heat recovery steam generators, and a SPPA-T3000 control system. The gas turbines, steam turbine, and generators will be manufactured at the A company Charlotte Energy Hub, which is the main production facility for A company’ 60-Hz generation business.bHkHorizontal boiler
Investment banking firms Goldman Sachs, ICBC, and Investec acted as joint lead arrangers for the senior debt financing of the plant, raising debt capital totaling $710 million. A company Financial Services is also supporting the project with a $125 million equity investment.bHkHorizontal boiler
Bechtel will be responsible for the engineering and procurement for the balance of the plant, and the installation, construction and commissioning of the facility.bHkHorizontal boiler
B company will access natural gas through the MARC 1 and Transcontinental regional gas pipelines, relying on ample gas supplies from the Marcellus region. It will also benefit from its close proximity to the Susquehanna-Roseland Electric Reliability Transmission Project, a recently completed 146-mile, 500-kV transmission line that was one of several projects fast-tracked by the Obama administration’s Rapid Response Team for Transmission.bHkHorizontal boiler
The plant is expected to begin operations in early 2018, with construction taking approximately 30 months.bHkHorizontal boiler
