PROENERGY Awarded 480 MW Remy Jade Project by WattBridge

PROENERGY announced that WattBridge Energy, LLC has awarded it the 480-MW Remy Jade project. The award includes the sixth WattBridge installation in 32 months—the 288-MW Remy Jade facility—and a further 192 MW of incremental units at existing WattBridge sites. PROENERGY will serve as the sole EPC contractor, and it will provide life-of-plant operations and maintenance services in support of energy security.

When completed, these facilities will increase PROENERGY build for WattBridge in the load-heavy ERCOT Houston zone to 2,304 MW, with another 1,696 MW in advanced development. The platform uses fast-start technology specifically engineered to support renewable installations when demand surpasses available supply, whether in routine or extreme weather conditions.

“Following Winter Storm Uri, our State’s leadership prioritized electric reliability to meet the everyday needs of Texas citizens,” says State Senator Brandon Creighton, District 4. “I’m pleased to see a Texas-based company using American innovation and manufacturing to not only answer our call, but also deliver at a pace and cost that quickly realizes the reliable, affordable power Texans need.”

Anticipated to be online in January of 2024, the Remy Jade facility will operate in Harris County using six LM6000 gas-turbine packages while the merchant units will incorporate four LM6000 gas-turbine packages. Like all WattBridge plants, the new facilities will be delivered as turnkey PowerFLX solutions by PROENERGY. Leveraging standardized design, the company specializes in resilient power that serves as a backstop to renewable energy and addresses grid intermittency concerns.

“Over the past year, the United States has seen record demand for fast-start power generation, and this trend is repeating all over the world,” says Jeff Canon, PROENERGY CEO. “We believe that our technology—driven by passionate engineers and manufacturing teams in Sedalia, Missouri—offers a responsible pathway to progress the energy transition and support a sustainable energy future.”

As one of the most prolific owners of LM6000 aeroderivative engines in the world, WattBridge offers a model that stabilizes grids while decarbonizing power generation, says the company’s President Mike Alvarado.  

“By displacing inefficient, high-carbon assets, the WattBridge platform offers a carbon-negative addition to any market,” he says. “With the financial backing of our investors, close relationships with governmental and regulatory bodies, and EPC capabilities of PROENERGY, we’re demonstrating the relevance and repeatability of our platform for the energy transition in Texas and beyond.”
