ProEnergy Awarded EPC Project by Prairie Power, Inc.

SEDALIA, Mo (February 15, 2016) - ProEnergy announced that it has been selected by Prairie Power, Inc. (PPI) to provide the engineering, procurement and construction for a turnkey 42 MW combustion turbine generator addition at PPI’s Alsey Generation Station located in Scott County, Illinois. The current plant consists of 5 natural gas-fired, peaking generators. The addition of the GE LM6000 PC Sprint unit will increase the capability of the Alsey Generation Station by 35 percent.

Prairie Power is a member-owned, not-for-profit electric generation and transmission cooperative. PPI’s ten member distribution cooperatives provide retail electric service to approximately 78,000 member consumers within their predominantly rural service territories. “This low cost, reconditioned electric generating unit utilizes natural gas which is an environmentally-preferred fuel source,” said Dan Breden, Interim President and CEO of Prairie Power, Inc. “We are pleased to be able to locate this new generating unit here in Central Illinois near our ten Members. This new Alsey unit builds upon our diversified portfolio of generation resources which today includes wind, solar, natural gas, fuel oil and coal to provide electricity to our ten Members at a stable and attractive cost.”

“In addition to the work involving the new unit, we will be providing gas turbine Control system retrofits at the same site for three Westinghouse W251s and two GE LM2500s,” said ProEnergy CEO, Jeff Canon. “We have done field service work for Prairie Power in the past, and we are honored to be given the opportunity to work with them on Controls upgrades and a unit addition at the Alsey Generation Station.”
