A 1215 MW combined-cycle power plant has won approval from the state of Texas.
The Orange County Advanced Power Station project will be built by a consortium of Mitsubishi Power Americas, Sargent & Lundy and TIC—The Industrial Co. Those companies will provide Entergy Texas with engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services to build the plant near Bridge City, Texas.
Mitsubishi Power, is supplying its hydrogen-capable power train which includes two M501JAC enhanced air-cooled gas turbines, steam turbine, heat recovery steam generator, and advanced control system.
“The OCAPS facility will power the rapidly growing Southeast Texas region for years to come and continue our mission of providing cleaner, more reliable, and lower-cost energy for our customers,” said President and CEO of Entergy Texas Eliecer Viamontes. “Additionally, the ability to unlock the plant’s hydrogen co-firing capability supports the plant’s long-term viability and will benefit our customers. OCAPS will be strategically located near hydrogen producers, pipeline, storage and off-takers to leverage this important source of clean and reliable energy in the future.”
