EthosEnergy has recently taken over operations and maintenance of the Louisiana station power plant for ExxonMobil, a combined cycle cogeneration facility that supplies power and steam to their adjacent integrated refining and chemicals complex in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The five year contract includes transition services and full care, custody and control of the facility, which was transferred to EthosEnergy in early June.

Gloria Moncada, ExxonMobil Baton Rouge refinery manager said: “We look forward to collaborating with EthosEnergy as a valued operator ensuring safe, reliable energy to fuel our refining and chemicals operations. These cogeneration facilities provide electricity and steam to support our 2,000 acre integrated complex, with electricity equivalent to powering over 61,000 homes.

Charlie Hoock, SVP of operations and maintenance from EthosEnergy, said: “Our focus on a collaborative transition strategy, people, quality and physical asset strategy were key factors in ExxonMobil selecting EthosEnergy. We will employ around 80 local workers as well as provide support from our corporate offices in Alpharetta and Houston.”
