The Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority will begin construction on a new natural gas-fired power plant in 2014, according to NewsOK.com. The 103 MW Charles D. Lamb Energy Center should be completed by spring 2015.
The power generation facility will connect to a nearby Oklahoma Gas & Electric 345 kV transmission line to connect to the grid. The plant’s single unit will use a Siemens gas-fired turbine and operate as a peaking facility. Sargent & Lundy is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the project.
