Panda Power Funds to build combined-cycle power plant in Maryland

Dorothy Lozowski

Panda Power Funds (Dallas, Tex.; www.pandafunds.com) has announced that it intends to build, own and operate an 859-MW combined-cycle power plant in an industrial-zoned area of Brandywine, Maryland. Once complete, the natural-gas-fueled generating station will be able to supply the power needs of approximately 859,000 homes in the greater Maryland / Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
The Panda Mattawoman plant will utilize the latest, most advanced emissions-control technology, making it one of the cleanest, most efficient natural-gas-fueled power plants in the nation, says the company.
The plant will also be a “zero-liquid-discharge” plant, returning no wastewater to a treatment facility and subsequently preventing the discharge of harmful nutrients into the Chesapeake Bay. In addition, potable water will not be used in the operation of the plant. The generating station will instead use recycled municipal wastewater for cooling purposes in order to help conserve the state’s natural supply of drinking water.
