Natural gas power plant starts construction in Wyoming

Construction started on the 132 MW Cheyenne Prairie natural gas-fired power plant in Wyoming.

The plant will use three gas-fired turbines, with one simple-cycle turbine owned by Cheyenne Light, Fuel & Power and a combined-cycle turbine jointly owned by Cheyenne Light and Black Hills Power.

The power plant is scheduled to begin operations in late 2014, according to Power Engineering.

Black Hills Power needs to replace 82 MW of coal-fired generation set to retire before March 2014, while Cheyenne Light is seeing an increase in demand due to a boost in economic development, and needs to replace a 40 MW power purchase agreement that ends in 2014.
