Wabash River Station

Wabash River is a six-unit station that was completed between 1953 and 1968. It is also the site of the 260-megawatt Wabash River Coal Gasification Repowering Project, owned by Wabash Valley Power Association and operated by Duke Energy. The project was one of the first demonstrations of coal gasification to produce electricity. The U.S. Department of Energy contributed $219 million to the project to help develop the coal gasification technology, an environmentally beneficial way to burn coal to generate power.
