Power plant project set to create 1,000 construction jobs

A S$1.3bn financing deal has been closed for the construction of a new power plant that will create 1,000 construction jobs in Ohio and power a million homes.

South Field Energy is a fully permitted 1,182MW combined-cycle natural gas electric generating facility in Columbiana County. Bechtel will undertake the engineering, procurement and construction of the energy center slated for completion in the second quarter of 2021. The project will create approximately 1,000 construction jobs during its peak period.

The facility is owned by Advanced Power and an investor group consisting of Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc., NH-Amundi Asset Management and PIA Investment Management, RS Global Capital Investment, Shikoku Electric Power and an affiliate of Bechtel Development Company.

“The South Field Energy project will create jobs and bring significant economic benefits to the Village of Wellsville, Columbiana County and the State,” said Zachary Gordon, South Field Energy’s project manager. “I am grateful to the Columbiana County community for its continued support in bringing this project to fruition. We look forward to starting construction and ultimately providing electricity from a facility that will be among the cleanest and most efficient of its kind.”

The facility will use two General Electric gas turbines, each with a heat recovery steam generator and steam turbine generator, and will produce enough electricity to power approximately one million homes. Advanced Power, which led the development of the facility, will be the construction and asset manager.
