Development of the Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center
Published:31 Jan 2011
This paper discusses the development of the Tenaska Trailblazer Energy Center, a supercritical pulverized coal electric generating station under development in Nolan County, Texas, United States. The site is located approximately nine miles east of Sweetwater, Texas and it is expected to be the first new-build coal plant to incorporate a commercial-scale carbon dioxide capture plant into the initial design. This report describes the history of the project development and looks at some of the key challenges being faced by the Project, including permitting, water supply and financing.
