Indeck Wharton seeks EWG status on in-construction project

Indeck Wharton LLC, which controls an in-construction, gas-fired power plant in Texas, on Sept. 16 filed a notice with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission of its self-certification as an exempt wholesale generator.

The company’s sole business will be the generation of electricity at a 650-MW facility located in Danevang, Texas, called the Indeck Wharton Energy Center. It consists of three sets of General Electric 7F.05 gas turbine generators, which the company will own, control and operate.

The Indeck Wharton Energy Center is currently under construction and is expected to generate test power in the second quarter of 2016 and begin commercial operation in January 2017. The plant will be interconnected with the transmission system owned by CenterPoint Energy and operated by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT).

The project company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Indeck Energy Services Inc., which is a privately-held corporation.
