MJE, with joint venture partner Lake Erie Electric (LEE), was part of the electrical installation at the Oregon Clean Energy Center (OCEC). In addition to the completion of the electrical construction effort, MJE and LEE have been instrumental in support of system start up. The OCEC is an 869 MW facility that will provide electricity for growing manufacturing and residential use. The OCEC will utilize two high-efficiency Siemens SGT6-8000H combustion turbine generators (CTGs), two heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs), and a Siemens SST6-5000 steam turbine. To increase power output, the HRSGs are equipped with supplemental firing and the gas turbines are equipped with evaporative coolers. The Siemens H class combustion turbines are being installed in a two-on-one combined-cycle configuration. The OCEC replaces generation from several aging coal-fired power plants in the region that are being retired.
MJE’s Utility Division completed an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract including the complete engineering and design, supply, inspection, delivery, installation, testing, and commissioning of a substation facility on FirstEnergy’s transmission system including interconnects into American Electric Power (AEP) and International Transmission Company (ITC) facilities. The new 345 kV switchyard is a five-breaker ring bus designed to FirstEnergy standards including, breakers, disconnect switches and associated relaying, metering, remote terminal unit (RTU), Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), and other miscellaneous supporting equipment.
