Project: Rolling Hills Generating Station Combined-Cycle Conversion Project
Company: Rolling Hills Generating, LLC
Location: Vinton County
Rolling Hills Generating, LLC, operated through an affiliate of Tenaska Capital Management, LLC, filed an amendment application on June 1, 2012. Rolling Hills plans to convert its existing simple cycle electric generation facility, located in Wilkesville, Ohio, to a combined cycle electric generation facility. The conversion would increase the facility’s capacity from its current level of 860 MW to 1,414 MW. With the conversion, it is anticipated that the operation of the facility will also change from its current peaking mode to an intermediate or base load operation. The converted facility would continue to be powered by natural gas. The Board approved construction on May 1, 2013.
