CHARLOTTE, N.C. (PRNewswire-FirstCall) Duke/Fluor Daniel has been awarded a contract by Duke Energy North America to provide turnkey engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the 1,240-megawatt Hanging Rock Energy Facility in Lawrence County, Ohio.
The natural gas-fueled facility will feature two pairs of General Electric 7 FA combustion turbine generators operating in combined cycle with two General Electric class D11 steam turbine generators. Commercial operation is scheduled for summer 2003. The value of the contract was not disclosed.
“Hanging Rock brings Duke/Fluor Daniel’s portfolio of active EPC projects for natural gas-fired power generation to more than 22,000 megawatts,” said Jeff Faulk, president and chief executive officer of Duke/Fluor Daniel. “This project helps maintain our leadership in bringing combined- cycle and simple- cycle power projects from the drawing board to the grid.”
“Given its strategic location in the grid and the overall quality of the project, Hanging Rock is a solid example of the merchant power projects that will serve North America’s energy appetite — which is continuing to grow at a baseline rate of 1 percent to 2 percent per year,” said Jim Donnell, president and chief executive officer of Duke Energy North America. “Duke/Fluor Daniel continues to do an excellent job equipping us to serve that growing demand.”
