Natural gas-fired combined-cycle power plant gains GHG permit

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a final greenhouse gas Prevention of Significant Deterioration construction permit for FGE Power to build a 747-MW natural gas-fired power plant in Texas.

The first and second phases of the FGE Texas combined-cycle plant will use Alstom Thermal Power’s KA-24 platform. Both units will generate 747-MW of capacity. The plant will cost a total of $1.2 billion. The first unit is scheduled for completion in mid-2016, while the second unit is set for completion in early 2017.
