Why an Ohio River Site?

Manufacturing and power generation are natural fits with a major waterway like the Ohio River which provides water for cooling and processing and low-cost transportation for bulk and finished materials.

The Ohio River’s 451 miles of shoreline borders 10 counties of the Appalachian Partnership region. Its waters support electric generation plants and polymer manufacturing processes and provides a major thoroughfare for transporting coal, steel and other bulk materials.  Industry values river transportation as it is the most cost efficient way to move raw materials and finished products.
