Formed in 1993 by 42 participating communities, AMP built and operates a 42-megawatt hydroelectric plant on the Ohio River on behalf of the joint venture and has back-up generation sources located throughout Ohio. The plant has two generating units with a FERC rated capacity of 21 MW per unit.
The Belleville plant passed a significant milestone in 2011, generating a total of 3,000,000 MWh since its commercial operation date started in 1999. The plant remains the flagship of AMP’s hydroelectric fleet and was instrumental in AMP’s pursuit of other hydro development. Voest Alpine MCE (now Andritz) supplied the turbines and generators.
