FPL to upgrade gas-fired units

30 April 2008 — Florida Power & Light (FPL) announced a proposal to modernize its power plants at Riviera Beach and Cape Canaveral to high-efficiency natural gas units.

The current generating units at the Riviera power plant went into service in 1962 and 1963 and generate 280 MW each. The Riviera Beach Next Generation Clean Energy Center, scheduled to go online in 2014, will have a combined cycle natural gas unit able to produce 1,250 MW.
