GE Providing Financing, Technology And Services For Gas-Fired Power Plant In Illinois

Stocks in this article: GE

GE (NYSE:GE) announced today it is anchoring a lending group for longtime customer Invenergy LLC to finance construction of its 584-megawatt Nelson Energy Center in Illinois. The plant will operate with GE’s 7F gas turbine technology, with support of a long-term GE maintenance services agreement.

GE Energy Financial Services served as the administrative agent, bookrunner and — through GE Capital Markets, Inc. — as primary lead arranger of the senior secured credit facilities. GE Energy Financial Services, ING Capital LLC and Siemens Financial Services, Inc. are providing construction and term loans for the plant, under construction in Rock Falls, about 120 miles west of Chicago. ING Capital LLC served as joint lead arranger and documentation agent. Financial details were not disclosed.

Invenergy Development Company LLC, a joint venture between an affiliate of Invenergy LLC and investment firm Stark Investments, is building the plant and plans to begin commercial operations to sell power into the PJM wholesale market in early 2015. Invenergy Services LLC, an affiliate of Invenergy LLC, will operate and maintain the plant.

“This transaction reinforces GE’s unique ability to connect financing and technology to serve a common customer, expands our relationship with longtime customer Invenergy to lead arranging and grows our debt portfolio,” said Carl Peterson, a managing director and Debt Origination Leader at GE Energy Financial Services.

GE Energy Financial Services has made equity or debt investments in several Invenergy LLC power generation projects. Overall, GE Energy Financial Services holds equity and debt investments in power projects with a combined capacity of 30 gigawatts, equivalent to the installed generating capacity of Norway.

In addition to two GE gas turbines, the plant will use two GE A10 steam turbines. Invenergy LLC has entered into a Site Change Agreement with GE to modify turbine and control systems. For example, GE is upgrading the units with GE’s Mark* VIe software controls technology, which improves operational performance.
