NTE Ohio begins approval process for 540 MW gas project

Sponsored by

NTE Ohio LLC filed a pre-application letter on April 1 at the Ohio Power Siting Board for a 540 MW, natural gas-fired plant to be located on about 50 acres that NTE has under exclusive option from AK Steel, within an industrial setting in Middletown in Butler County.

NTE is seeking waivers from certain board requirements governing electric power generating stations. Such waivers are routinely asked for in the pre-application stage of the board review process, with a formal project application to be filed once the board presumably approves the waivers.

The Middletown Energy Center project will consist of one gas-fired, high-efficiency combustion turbine with one heat recovery steam generator and one steam turbine. It will have a cooling tower and pollution controls. The plant will be served by natural gas from one or multiple pipelines. It will interconnect to an existing 345-kV transmission line on site.

The facility will be supplied water from the city of Middletown, but other potential water supply options are being explored. The city will also provide the project with wastewater discharge services.

NTE told the board it will hold a public information meeting on April 17 at the Verity Lodge on the University of Miami-Middletown Campus.

Florida-based NTE Energy announced January 28 that it plans to develop, own and operate the Middletown Energy Center, which will represent an investment of over $500m. The plant will use a Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas M501JAC advanced combustion turbine in combined cycle configuration. The project is expected to begin construction in 2015 and become fully operational in 2018.

“As the energy landscape continues to change, the need for affordable, cleaner base load generation is upon us,” said Seth Shortlidge, president of NTE Energy, in the January 28 announcement. “NTE Energy looks forward to working with the Middletown community in developing one of the cleanest, most efficient, and most reliable sources to fulfill this growing demand.”
