Sunoco, Inc. announced today plans for a second Sun Coke Company Heat Recovery coke manufacturing plant in Haverhill, Ohio.
Long-term contracts for the sale of coke have been executed with customers. Construction is scheduled to begin later this quarter.
The facility will be 100 percent owned and operated by Sun Coke and have 100 Jewell Thompson Heat Recovery ovens that will produce approximately 550 thousand tons of blast furnace coke per year. The facility is designed to capture waste heat from the ovens to produce and supply steam to a 67 megawatt turbine, to provide a net average of 46 megawatts of power into the regional power market. Total cost is estimated at approximately $230 million and full production is expected about 18 months after construction begins.
