WattBridge Energy announced the commissioning of the Mark One Generating Station in Brazoria County, Texas. The 288 MW plant is powered by six ProEnergy LM6000 gas-turbine packages.

ProEnergy provided EPC, O&M and plant equipment services for Mark One. MUFG Union Bank, CoBank ACB and Truist Bank handled financing.

Mark One becomes WattBridge’s fourth new peaker plant to come online within the last three years in Texas. The independent power producer has beefed up its operating portfolio from six LM6000 units in January 2021 to 30 LM6000 units today.

The first WattBridge facility, HO Clarke Generating Station in Houston, came online just weeks ahead of Winter Storm Uri in 2021.

In July 2022, we reported that the company’s 288 MW Braes Bayou project came online.

Houston-based WattBridge said it currently has 2,400 MW operating or under construction in ERCOT and a further 1,600 MW in advanced development.
