$615M power plant in the works for Marshall County

Updated: Wednesday, April 23 2014, 10:21 AM EDT

Marshall County, W.Va.--

A $615 million natural gas power plant could be coming to Marshall County.

County commissioners passed a resolution this morning for the power plant, according to Marshall County Administrator Betsy Frohnapfel.

Frohnapfel said it's to be built 3 miles south of Moundsville at the old Hanlin-Allied plant.

The construction of the plant will create 400-500 jobs and then 30 full-time high-paying positions after it's built.

Officials with Moundsville Power LLC said they plan to have the plant operational by 2018.

The Marshall County Board of Education also passed a resolution Tuesday night at their regularly scheduled board meeting.
