The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued an April 9 letter order accepting the fact that an affiliate of international steel producer ArcelorMittal at the end of 2012 bought a 20-MW power plant in Ohio.
On Feb. 27, ArcelorMittal USA LLC filed a notice with the commission of a change in status stating that ArcelorMittal Cleveland Inc. acquired a 20-MW natural gas fired electric facility located in Warren, Ohio. The company said this acquisition does not affect the conditions the commission relied upon when granting ArcelorMittal market-based rate authority.
The filing was noticed on Feb. 28, with no outside comments offered.
ArcelorMittal USA said this buy brings its total generating capacity to 480 MW, with 95 MW of that capacity currently out of service.
