Circle, MT 59215
As of May 2009, the project appears abandoned. No air permit has been submitted. However, the company may pursue plans to build an IGCC facility instead of a traditional coal plant.
Vaninetti's Great Northern Power Development and its partner, Kiewit Mining Group of Omaha, in May announced their intention to proceed with permitting and construction of a 500-megawatt coal-fired generating plant at Miles City.
The plant will include an adjacent coal mine and wind-power facility. The project is estimated to cost $900 million and will provide 175 direct jobs and an estimated 1,200 spin-off service jobs. Construction is estimated to be complete and the electrical power on line by 2008.
