Riverbend Steam Station is a coal-fired generating facility located in Gaston County, N.C. The four-unit station is named for a bend in the Catawba River on which it is located.
Riverbend is considered a cycling station and is brought on line to supplement supply when electricity demand is highest. Four gas-fired combustion turbine units were retired in October 2012.
