New manager named at PSO power plant in Oologah

Public Service Company of Oklahoma announced the appointment of a new manager of its power plant in Oologah.
The company named Terry McGee as the Plant Manager for Northeastern State Units 1 and 2.

McGee, who has nearly 40 years of experience working in power generation, assumes his new job after serving as Plant Manager of PSO’s Tulsa Power Station since 2008. Prior to that, he served in various engineering and plant positions at PSO, including team lead for the company’s Regional Service Organization, and Maintenance Supervisor at Riverside Station in Jenks, OK.

Appointment to his new position was effective September 22. Mark Barton, who has been the manager over all three generating units at NES, will remain the manager at NES Unit 3, while also taking on additional responsibilities as manager of performance improvement for all seven of PSO’s generating facilities.

“Terry’s vast knowledge and experience will be invaluable as he takes over management of daily operations at NES 1&2,” said Monte McMahon, PSO vice president – Generating Assets. “In addition, this move will allow Mark more time to focus on his newly-added responsibilities as we work to continue providing PSO customers the best, most dependable and low-cost electric generation possible.”

Along with natural gas-fired NES Units 1&2 and the coal-fired NES Unit 3 in Oologah, PSO has gas-fired generating plants in Tulsa, Jenks, Weleetka, Lawton and near Anadarko.
