Bechtel Picked for Texas Power Expansion

Dallas-based TXU announced it intends to invest a total of $10 billion to build up to 11 new power generating units at nine existing power plant sites. Bechtel will be the primary contractor on up to nine of the units—most with a capacity of 800 megawatts. The company will begin immediately to provide permitting support, preliminary engineering, procurement of major equipment, and construction planning, with construction set to start next year.
Bechtel also is working on a project to replace four aging steam generators at TXU’s Comanche Peak nuclear station southwest of Dallas. Bechtel assisted TXU in the completion and startup of the two-unit station in the early 1990s.
