Meizhou Wan Project, First Foreign-owned Power Plant In China

March 1, 2001 Bechtel is nearing completion of the first foreign-owned power plant in China, with an exceptional record of safety and diversity. The 724-megawatt, coal-fired Meizhou Wan project also was Bechtel's first lump-sum turnkey job in that country. The project brought together a cross-cultural team representing many languages, religions, and nationalities. Bechtel designers, engineers from Fujian Design Institute and Fujian Test Institute, and a blend of foreign and domestic construction workers completed 17.3 million job hours with only one lost-time accident.
