HOUSTON, Texas, Sept. 14, 2001 — Vectren Power Supply, a subsidiary of Vectren Corporation, has awarded Black & Veatch the engineering & construction contract for three Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) unit additions at two different plants in Indiana.
Construction of the first SCR unit at the Culley power station in New Burgh, Indiana will be for the No. 3 265MW Unit with tie-ins scheduled for May 2002. The subsequent SCRs will be installed at their AB Brown power station in Mount Vernon, Indiana and construction will begin fall of 2002. These SCR units will reduce NOx emissions as mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Air Act Standards.
The addition of SCRs and other emission reduction equipment is an expenditure that most base load power producers will need to deal with as the deadline of May 2004 approaches.
Vectren Corporation is an energy and applied technology holding company that was formed and began operations in March 2000 through the combination of Indiana Energy Incorporated & SIGCORP Incorporated.
Black & Veatch is a privately held $2.4 billion engineering & construction firm that was established in 1915 and currently employs over 9,000 people.
