«NAES has consistently delivered a standard of operational excellence at other CPV facilities that aligns with our vision of modernizing America’s power generation,» said Tom Rumsey, CPV Senior Vice President of External Affairs. «This agreement reflects our confidence in their ability to optimize Fairview’s performance and deliver significant value to the region.»

Dan Consie, NAES Senior Vice President of Power Services, added, «We are excited to take on the operation of this new facility and to have another opportunity to work with CPV. We’ve established a strong partnership with them during the mobilization and have developed an operating plan that will amply meet their technical and commercial goals.» 

Combining advanced technology with state-of-the-art emission controls, CPV Fairview is equipped with two GE 7HA.02 combustion turbines, two heat recovery steam generators and one steam turbine. It will be one of the cleanest, most efficient generating facilities in Pennsylvania.

After the water has cycled through the plant, it will be treated and returned to CSA, where it can be reused for industrial processes.
