GE completes upgrading Coyote Springs combined-cycle gas plant

A General Electric (NYSE:GE) company has completed a gas turbine upgrade project in Oregon for the Avista (NYSE:AVA) Coyote Springs power plant.

GE Power Services has upgraded the utility’s 280-MW Coyote Springs Unit 2 in Boardman, Oregon, which produces enough electricity to meet the needs of more than 210,000 homes, GE said July 21.

The utility installed GE’s Advanced Gas Path (AGP) and Dry Low NOx 2.6+ (DLN2.6+) combustion technologies and increased the plant’s flexibility, plant capacity by 18 MW in combined-cycle mode and fuel efficiency by 1.56%.

Avista also extended its existing multiyear service agreement with GE, the vendor announced.
