October 7 - Indiana Michigan Power has sold its recently retired Tanners Creek coal plant in Lawrenceburg to a brownfield development company that is working with the Ports of Indiana to evaluate the site for use as the state's fourth port.

Indiana's governor Mike Pence called upon Ports of Indiana to explore the building of a fourth port in the southeast of the state during his state of the state address.

St Louis based Commercial Development Company (CDC) and its affiliates - Environmental Liability Transfer and EnviroAnalytics Group - will work with the Ports of Indiana to determine if the facility's approximately 700 acres (283 ha) of property can be developed as the state's fourth port.
