Oglethorpe Power is acquiring two generating units at Washington County Power, a four-unit, 660 MW gas-fired plant in Sandersville, Georgia.

The sale agreement was with Gulf Pacific Power, which is managed by Harbert Management Corporation. Financial terms of the deal were not shared.

Oglethorpe Power said the two GE units, totaling about 330 MW, are permitted for dual-fuel capability and in the future could be modified to run on either natural gas or diesel fuel. Washington County Power entered commercial operation in 2003.

This would be Oglethorpe Power’s sixth acquisition of natural gas-fired generation in Georgia over the last 13 years, totaling more than 3,000 MW. The deal is expected to close by the end of 2022.
