The Energy Group at Abrahams Kaslow & Cassman actively participated in the development of the Tenaska Westmoreland Generating Station. This new natural gas-fueled power plant in southwest Pennsylvania is now operational.
Located near Smithton in South Huntingdon Township, Westmoreland County, the 940-megawatt (MW) plant can generate enough power for about 940,000 homes. Commercial operation of the plant began December 21, 2018.
Abrahams Kaslow & Cassman assisted in the preparation and negotiation of agreements for the purchase of two natural gas-fueled turbines from Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems; for the engineering, procurement, and construction of the plant by Black & Veatch; and for long term maintenance of the gas turbines by Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems. AKC Law also assisted Tenaska in the financing of the project.
Construction of the Tenaska Westmoreland Generating Station began in 2016 and had direct costs of more than $500 million.
AKC Law has represented Tenaska in the development of power projects for over 25 years. AKC Law attorneys have helped Tenaska develop over 8,000 MW of natural gas-fueled electric power projects, and 280 MW of utility-scale solar-powered electric power projects.
