Electricity generator proposed at coke plant

A plan to create electricity from steam generated by the proposed FDS Coke Plant will be unveiled to the public Tuesday night.

U.S. Coking Group is proposing a 135 megawatt, co-generation power plant to be built adjacent to the coke plant so that the former can use the latter's steam.

A 135-megawatt plant would produce enough electricity for more than 100,000 homes during nonpeak months.

That's about one-fourth of the power produced by FirstEnergy Corp.'s 620-megawatt, coal-fired Bay Shore power plant in Oregon; one-seventh of the power produced by FirstEnergy's 946-megawatt Davis-Besse nuclear plant in Ottawa County, and about one-eighth of the power produced by DTE Energy's 1,100-megawatt Fermi 2 nuclear plant in Monroe County.

The meeting will be from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Oregon municipal offices, 5330 Seaman Rd., Oregon.

Lance Traves, the FDS Coke Plant's environmental consultant, said the discussion will be confined to the proposed power plant.

For more information, call Mr. Traves at 330-764-4825, Ext. 201.
