Lawrence Generating Station

image

The Lawrence Generating Station began commercial operation on May 1, 2005. Hoosier Energy and Wabash Valley Power Association own the $90-million, 258-megawatt natural gas-fired generating facility, located on a 50-acre site between Bedford and Mitchell in Lawrence County.

Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman was present at the plant’s official dedication on July 13, 2005.

Each of the station’s six units has a capacity of 43 megawatts. The quick start-up capability of its simple cycle combustion turbines adds operational and economic flexibility for the cooperative power suppliers, particularly during periods of peak demand.

The site is adjacent to natural gas lines, water supplies and Hoosier Energy’s 161-kilovolt transmission lines, which provide access to the power grid. North American Energy Services operates the Lawrence Station under a contract with Hoosier Energy.

Opened by Williams Energy in 2000, the Worthington Station was acquired by Hoosier Energy in early 2003.

The plant is connected to the power grid through Hoosier Energy’s 138-kilovolt transmission lines and adjacent primary substation. The plant is operated by North American Energy Services under a contract arrangement.
