"South Field Energy exemplifies our commitment to develop and manage world-class low-carbon, independent power generation in partnership with the communities in which we operate," said Thomas Spang, Advanced Power's CEO. "We are honored to be a part of the community and look forward to continuing our support of its economic growth and providing funding directly to local schools through our Enterprise Zone Agreement."

"South Field Energy was built using advanced technology to construct a state-of-the-art low-carbon electric generating facility that is among the cleanest and most efficient of its kind," said Scott Curry, South Field Energy's project director. "Many people and organizations from Columbiana County and its surrounding communities were instrumental in building this vital resource which benefits Ohio's energy portfolio and the people who rely upon it. We're proud of what we've accomplished together."

The electric generating facility, which is managed by Advanced Power, sells energy, capacity, and ancillary services into the PJM energy market.

Bechtel, a global leader in the design and execution of complex power projects for more than 60 years, was responsible for the engineering, procurement, and construction of the facility.

The facility uses two General Electric gas turbines, each with a heat recovery steam generator and steam turbine generator, and will produce enough electricity to power approximately one million homes and businesses.
