AES Corp. said it had begun construction of the $300 million, 730 megawatt, AES Wolf Hollow power plant in Granbury, TX, 30 miles southwest of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.

The natural gas fired plant will supply 350 megawatts of electricity under a 20-year power purchase agreement with a major U.S. power marketer, AES said in a statement.

The remaining electric power will be sold into the Texas electricity market, the company said.

The plant is expected to begin commercial operations in the summer of 2002.

AES Wolf Hollow will use MHI 501 "G" combustion turbine technology, with major equipment supplied by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. and Mitsubishi Corp. unit Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America Inc., AES said in the statement.

AES said its world-wide generating assets include interests in 153 facilities totaling over 53 gigawatts of capacity.
