About This Project

220-megawatt (MW) natural gas-fired plant is highly efficient and designed for maximum flexibility in order to meet real-time fluctuations and integrate renewable resources. The plant utilizes 12 reciprocating engines supplied by Wärtsilä North America. The 25,000-horsepower 50SG engines are the first of their size to run entirely on natural gas. The facility sits adjacent to PGE’s existing natural gas-fired Port Westward and Beaver plants in Columbia County, OR. Port Westward Unit 2 can ramp up to full load in less than 10 minutes, allowing it to compensate for wind and solar variability.
