The principle “energy attracts energy” seems to be at work at Satsop Business Park.
Built as a nuclear power plant that was never finished, fueled or fired, the Satsop Business Park must have a special energy of its own. It keeps attracting various power-related industries.
The latest, Xpress Natural Gas, (XNG), was up and running last fall serving its anchor customer – Port Townsend Paper Corporation – and is already looking to expand.
“We’re taking calls on a regular basis and I think that will increase as people become aware of what we’re doing and the money we can save them,” said Matt Smith, XNG’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We’re in discussions with more than a dozen companies or institutions about setting up for our gas services in the next 12 months.”
