Mississippi Power to break ground for Kemper plant
KEMPER COUNTY — Mississippi Power Co. will hold a ceremonial groundbreaking next week for its $2.4-billion electric power plant in Kemper County.
The event is scheduled for Dec. 16. Details of the event have not been announced. The Mississippi Development Authority is handling the event.
The 582-megawatt plant is being built between Mississippi 493 and Mississippi 495 near the Liberty community. It will use a process that converts coal into a synthesis gas that can generate electricity with fewer emissions than existing pulverized coal power plants.
Bob Fairbank, director of Governmental Relations for Mississippi Power, told a Philadelphia civic club that steel would be coming out of ground in 2011.
Fairbank says the facility will employ about 280 people by 2014.
