GE (NYSE: GE) will supply two natural gas-fired turbine generators to help in the replacement of a coal-fired power plant in Tennessee.
The Tennessee Valley Authority is replacing three coal-fired units at the Thomas H. Allen Fossil Plant in Tennessee to reduce coal emissions under an U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rule. GE will provide the two 7HA.02 gas turbines for a combined-cycle power plant that will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 65 percent and reduce both sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions by over 95 percent. The Allen plant will have the capacity to generate 1,000 MW of power in combined-cycle mode.
