Riverbend Steam Station was constructed as a coal-fired generating facility located in Gaston County, N.C. The four-unit station was named for a bend in the Catawba River on which it is located. When in operation, Riverbend was considered a cycling station and was brought on line to supplement supply when electricity demand was high.
Four gas-fired combustion turbine units were retired in October 2012.
Duke Energy retired Riverbend Steam Station on April 1, 2013.
