On August 21 Tyr Energy, Inc., Kansai Electric Power Co., Inc. and Siemens Financial Services, Inc. announced they have started the construction of the Hickory Run Energy Center, LLC Power Plant, a 1,000 megawatt natural gas power plant located near North Beaver Township, Lawrence County.
Hickory Run plans to meet its commercial operation date in April 2020.
Kiewit Power Constructors Co. (Kiewit), which has extensive engineering, procurement and construction experience for power projects in Pennsylvania, is the contractor for the project. Primary equipment includes two Siemens SGT6-8000H gas turbine generators, two heat recovery steam generators and a Siemens steam turbine generator.
During the construction phase the project will provide 500 full time equivalent jobs, and after its commercial operation, it will produce enough electricity for approximately one million households, by providing it to the PJM market, the largest power wholesale market in U.S.
Tyr Energy, LLC will provide all asset management services upon commercial operations and NAES Corporation, a Tyr affiliate, will provide operations and maintenance to the project, employing approximately 20 full time individuals locally.
Tyr Energy is helping to develop a second project in Pennsylvania-- a 337 mw natural gas combined cycle plant known as Good Spring in Schuylkill County.
