Footprint Power, Toyota Tsusho partner for development of new natural gas fired facility at Salem Harbor

SALEM, MA – Footprint Power LLC announced that it is partnering with Toyota Tsusho Corporation, a member of the group of companies that includes Toyota Motors Corporation, on the development of its new natural gas fired generating facility at the site of the existing Salem Harbor Station.

Footprint acquired Salem Harbor last month from Dominion Energy Inc.

“We are delighted to add a world class organization with Toyota’s resources and experience as a member of our team.” said Peter Furniss, Footprint’s CEO. “We look forward to working together with Toyota Tsusho to successfully develop a new, clean, efficient facility that will serve as the economic engine that will drive redevelopment of the rest of the non-power portions of the site,” he added.

Toyota Tsusho will be actively involved in the development process, contributing financially to the project as well as providing its expertise in development and operation of electric generating facilities.
