Senator to visit Chattanooga turbine plant

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee is scheduled to visit a Chattanooga plant that manufactures turbines for power plants.

Corker will tour the Alstom facility, the newest plant of the France-based manufacturer, on Wednesday afternoon.

Corker, a Republican who served as mayor of Chattanooga, is scheduled to visit the plant and meet with employees, starting at about 3:40 p.m.

Alstom's website says the Chattanooga plant has the capacity to manufacture and test the world's largest turbines for fossil steam, nuclear and gas power plants. The plant opened in 2010.
