520 Megawatt Gas-burner Planned for Virginia

LCG, Nov. 7, 2000--A new 520 megawatt natural gas-fueled combined cycle power plant is planned for central Virginia, a few miles southeast of Charlottesville, according to a special use permit application filed with the Fluvanna County Planning Commission by Competitive Power Ventures, a Maryland firm.

The Cunningham Creek plant will occupy 20 acres within a 388-acre tract and will use air-cooled condensers in order to minimize water use. The air-cooled condensers will also do away with the visible cloud of steam that hovers over many power plants.

The Fluvanna Country planning staff will review the special use permit application and comment on it before it goes to the commission in December. A final vote on the application could be taken by the county Board of Supervisors in January.

Chris Broemmelsiek, project manager for the Cunningham Creek project, said CPV employees will host an open house November 21 in the auditorium of a local school to keep Fluvanna residents informed of the company's plans.
