HOUSTON — The Woodlands, Texas-based Biofuels Power Corp. has agreed to purchase the decommissioned H.O. Clarke Electric Generating Station, located at the intersection of Main Street and Hiram Clarke Road in Houston. The acquisition will include the 79-acre site, as well as all of the remaining infrastructure and equipment, which includes 65,000 barrels of aboveground storage tanks and a high-pressure natural gas pipeline that is connected to the distribution system. The power station, which was constructed in the 1940s, was decommissioned in 2004. At the time, the station’s gas-fired turbines were also removed. Biofuels Power Corp. plans to redevelop the site into a clean energy industrial park that will provide power to tenants by way of biofuels, biomass, natural gas, biogas and solar energy. The deal is expected to close by the end of the year. The construction timetable for the redevelopment was not disclosed.
