Entergy Texas selects MHPS gas turbines for Montgomery County plant

Published on: 

Entergy Texas has selected MHPS to power its 993 MW Montgomery County Power Station (MCPS) near Willis, Texas. The plant is expected to be operational in 2021.

In 2017, Entergy Louisiana selected MHPS to provide two M501GAC gas turbines for its 980 MW St. Charles Power Station. St. Charles is scheduled to open this year.

MHPS says the Montgomery County Power Station will be one of the cleanest units in Entergy Texas’ generation fleet. The plant will feature a state-of-the-art emissions control technology that will lower emissions compared to the existing fleet through the use of high-efficiency, combined-cycle natural gas turbines that are projected to save for Entergy Texas customers more than $1 billion over the next 30 years.


The two turbines to be installed at the Montgomery County Power Station are air-cooled versions of the MHPS G-Series.
