Another coal-fired power plant demolished

The former Kammer power plant south of Moundsville, W.Va., is being demolished, and the property has been sold to a private developer.

According to the story in the Wheeling newspaper

With demolition already underway on portions of its closed Kammer Plant, American Electric Power recently sold the former coal-fired electricity generator to the Frontier Group of Companies for redevelopment.

Frontier is the same firm that recently purchased 1,100 acres of former Weirton Steel Corp. property for demolition and redevelopment and acquired the former Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corp. Mingo Junction plant in 2012.

Last fall, AEP sold its Tanners Creek power plant property to the state of Indiana for possible future development as a river port.

AEP has at least one other shuttered power plant along the Ohio whose future is unknown to the rest of us, that being the Philip Sporn plant a few miles below the Racine Locks and Dam.
