Clarksburg’s Sanitary Board Considers Agreement with Power Plant

IMG_6077

The Clarksburg Sanitary Board met Tuesday, March 12th in the City Manager’s Conference Room to discuss the consideration of an Alternate Mainline Sewer Extension Agreement between Energy Solutions Consortium (ESC) Harrison County Power, LLC and Clarksburg Sanitary Board.

The Sanitary Board would provide critical infrastructure to the powerplant and accept sanitary flow into their system which will ultimately be treated at the Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The projected Power Plant will be located outside the city limits near the Montpelier section of Clarksburg.

In attendance at the Sanitary Board Meeting were Todd Waldrop, Project Manager of Energy Solutions Consortium, the company developing the powerplant along with Sanitary Board Members Chairman Martin Howe, Vice Chairman Mark Linville, Secretary Joseph Spatafore and Sanitary Board Engineer Dan Ferrell from The Thrasher Group. In addition were Superintendent of Public Works/Assistant City Manager Anthony Bellotte, Superintendent of Wastwater Treatment Plant Paul Lehosit; MS4 Director Adam Barberio, and City Attorney James Cann.

According to Waldrop, construction will begin June or July of this year and will consist of a 24-month construction process.  The plant is expected to be fully operational by November 2021.

ESC Harrison County Power will construct a natural gas fueled electric generation station. The plant design will consist of one combustion turbine generator (CTG), connected to one heat recovery steam generator (HRSG). The HRSG harnesses exhaust heat from the CTG to generate high-quality, superheated steam. The steam will drive a steam turbine (ST) to generate additional electricity in an environmentally friendly and efficient manner.

ESC Harrison County Power will be able to access abundant regional natural gas by interconnecting to existing local natural gas pipeline infrastructure. By doing so, the project will generate enough electricity to power approximately 425,000 homes. Additionally, the power generated will be sold in the thirteen-state PJM Interconnection System (the grid) via existing transmission lines, which are in close proximity to the site location.

It is projected the annual economic impact of the facility will total $287 million per year and will provide 2,543 job years of work (1 job year = one person working for one full year)

After discussion, The Board took no action on the agreement as presented.  They will work with staff on further clarification.  The Sanitary Board will meet again Tuesday, April, 9, 2019.

City Manager/Chairman Martin Howe stated, “This is a very significant project to Harrison County and the region.  The City is fortunate to be in the position that allows for this development to occur.  Without continued investment in our infrastructure, the opportunity would most likely not be able to proceed further.
