Glastonbury's Gemma Power Systems has completed its construction of a 475-megawatt natural gas power plant in Ohio.

Gemma provided engineering, procurement and construction services for the Middletown, Ohio plant under a contract with an affiliate of NTE Energy. The Middletown Energy Center was certified for commercial operations and was dispatched to the grid last week.

The Ohio plant is a sister project to the Kings Mountain Energy Center.

“NTE Energy was a new customer for us and we appreciate the opportunity and confidence they showed in us,” said Gemma CEO William F. Griffin Jr.

Construction crews broke ground at the Ohio plant less than three years ago under a contract valued at $300 million, the company has said

Meanwhile, the Glastonbury company was also recently hired to oversee the building of a 475-megawatt natural-gas-fired plant in Reidsville, N.C. The project will cost $450 million, reported last year.

NTE has hired Gemma to oversee three plants, under an engineering, procurement and construction contract.

The other project is located in Kings Mountain, N.C., which is scheduled for completion later this year.

Gemma is owned by Argan Inc., a publicly traded company headquartered in Maryland.
