Bechtel Enterprises Project Profiles

A brief rundown of some of our work.
  • Tube Lines—composed of Bechtel Enterprises and Amey PLC—won a concession and raised $3.1 billion of private finance to upgrade and maintain one-third of the London Underground (London’s subway system) through a public-private partnership.
  • Building on the strengths of two industry leaders, Generation mPower LLC is a company formed between Bechtel Power Corporation (Bechtel) and Babcock & Wilcox Nuclear Energy, Inc. (B&W NE). The alliance between Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W) and Bechtel is to design, license and build the next generation of nuclear power plants based on B&W mPower™ reactor technology.
  • In 2009, Bechtel Enterprises announced an investment in three Ivanpah Solar Plants developed by BrightSource, Inc. The Ivanpah facility will utilize BrightSource Energy’s proven Luz Power Tower 550 technology (LPT 550).
  • Bechtel Enterprises helped project sponsors of the Nanhai Petrochemicals Complex in China to close a $400 million multi-country export credit facility. This enabled the project to secure financing from international commercial banks and lower the cost of the project's debt.
  • Bechtel Enterprises helped negotiate and arrange a $250 million guaranty instrument relating to the financing of the Croatian Motorway, a major project that began in 1998. This allowed the customer to fund the third and last phase of the project
  • Alterra Partners—composed of Bechtel Enterprises and Singapore Changi Airport Enterprise— worked on three concession projects in Latin America and the Caribbean: the Jorge Chavez International Airport serving Lima, Peru, the Juan Santamaria Airport in Costa Rica, and the Hato International Airport in Curacao. These concessions required Alterra to operate the existing facilities, plan for future growth, and implement state-of-the-art airport capital expansion programs.
  • For InterGen and Turkish partner Enka, Bechtel Enterprises assisted in arranging the $1.5 billion financing of the Gebze, Adapazari, and Izmir natural gas-fired power facilities in Turkey—one of the largest private sector greenfield power project financings ever completed.
  • Bechtel Enterprises created a public-private partnership to extend Portland, Oregon’s light-rail system to its international airport, in return for 85-year development rights on 121 acres (49 hectares) of adjacent airport property. Total financed costs for the light-rail project were $125 million.
