Mississippi Power has generated electricity in the second gasifier at the Kemper County energy facility. Electricity was generated by synthesis gas (syngas) from lignite.
“This is a substantial step forward for the project,” said Mississippi President and CEO, Anthony Wilson. “We are now closer to integrating all of the systems at the facility to deliver on our mission to provide clean reliable energy for our customers.”
Earlier this month, the company said it was completing maintenance on the first gasifier at the plant, which has followed six weeks of successful syngas production – including the first generation of electricity using syngas.
Remaining milestones for the plant include successful carbon capture and the integration of all systems necessary for both combustion turbines to simultaneously generate electricity with syngas. The expected date for the plant to be placed in service is 31 December.
