Invenergy breaks ground on $1.2bn energy centre in Pennsylvania

WCN Editorial Team 29 Apr 2016 NORTH AMERICA ENERGY & UTILITIES

Clean energy company Invenergy has broken ground on the $1.2bn Lackawanna Energy Center (LEC) in Jessup, Pennsylvania.

 
The environmentally-friendly facility is being built on a site that is located on the far side of the highway and set behind a tree line, minimising visibility and noise.

LEC will be equipped with GE's latest technology, and will generate fewer emissions due to the high-efficiency combustion turbines. The combined-cycle facility will maximize the usage of the heat from natural gas as fuel, increasing efficiency.

Kiewit Power Constructors has secured the construction contract for the 1,500MW power plant, which will employ up to 800 construction workers during the construction peak. The energy centre is expected to be operational in 2018 and will then create 30 full-time jobs.
