Sargent & Lundy is the engineer of record, TIC is the constructor, and Mitsubishi Power is supplying a hydrogen-capable power train consisting of two M501JAC enhanced air-cooled gas turbines, steam turbine, heat recovery steam generator, and advanced control system.

President and CEO of Entergy Texas, Eliecer Viamontes, said: “The ability to unlock the plant’s hydrogen co-firing capability supports the plant’s long-term viability...OCAPS will be strategically located near hydrogen producers, pipeline, storage and off-takers to leverage this important source of clean and reliable energy in the future.”
