Wallula Energy Resource Center
The Wallula Energy Resource Center (WERC) is a nominal 915 MW (gross) Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) electric generating facility to be constructed near Wallula, Washington (location map). Net power output from the project is planned to be approximately 700 MW. The WERC will be located on a 759-acre site on Port of Walla Walla land in the northeastern portion of Walla Walla County. The WERC will purchase coal from the Powder River Basin as feedstock, pulverize and gasify it on site to create synthetic gas (syngas). The syngas will fuel combustion turbines in a combined-cycle power plant to generate electricity. Carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) is proposed to be sequestered in the process. Natural gas will be used as a back-up fuel.
The Wallula Energy Resource Center project is being jointly developed by Wallula Resource Recovery LLC and Wallula Energy Resource Company LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Edison Mission Energy, through a Joint Development Agreement. The Project will be owned by Wallula Energy Resource Company LLC. Proponent Website
