GE Power’s 7HA.02 gas turbine will help power the 485 MW Long Ridge Energy Generation LLC Project in Hannibal, Ohio, USA. The Long Ridge Energy Generation Project is located at the site of the former Ormet aluminum smelter, which operated for over half a century until its closure in 2013.The plant, which is slated to go online in 2021, is designed to provide long-term, low-cost power to industrial energy users in the region.

GE Power said its HA gas turbine technology will be used at the Long Ridge Energy Generation LLC Project in Hannibal, Ohio, USA.

GE’s 7HA.02 gas turbine will be the heart of the 485 MW power plant project. Fortress Transportation and Infrastructure Investors LLC, a global company that owns and acquires transportation equipment and infrastructure across aviation, energy and rail, is developing the project.

The power plant is part of the Long Ridge Energy Terminal is situated on 1660 acres in Monroe County, Ohio and Wetzel County, West Virginia, in the heart of the Marcellus and Utica shale formations.  Long Ridge has three primary lines of business that are operational or in development, including power generation, natural gas liquids storage and transloading and frac sand transloading.

The order also includes one GE steam turbine and generator, one heat recovery generator (HRSG), and a multi-year services agreement.

“We are excited to work together with GE, and thanks to its HA technology the Long Ridge Energy Generation LLC Project will provide efficient and low-cost energy for Ohio,” said Fortress Transportation and Infrastructure Investors LLC’s CEO Joe Adams. “The construction of the project will also provide new jobs in the greater Ohio community.”

The plant will produce electricity used for industrial applications, and is designed to provide flexible, reliable electricity for consumers. Kiewit Power Constructors Co. will be responsible for the construction of the power plant project which is scheduled to begin immediately and to be completed by November 2021.

“We are proud of our collaboration with Fortress on the Long Ridge Energy Generation Project and are honored that the Fortress team selected GE as their technology partner.  This combined-cycle plant featuring our HA gas turbine will offer Fortress enhanced flexibility and efficiency, while providing reliable electricity for industrial customers in the region,” said Dave Ross, president of Sales, North America for GE Power.

GE’s HA fleet of gas turbines has surpassed more than 250,000 operating hours and has secured more than 85 orders from 35+ customers across more than 16 countries. Recently, GE announced an award in Taiwan and an order in United Arab Emirates for its HA gas turbine.
