Bechtel is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, start-up and commissioning of the new 700-megawatt gas-fired, combined-cycle generating facility in Ohio, USA which broke ground on July 21, 2015. Bechtel also partnered with Advanced Power to develop the project.
Creation of this facility is an important step for America’s move forward into cleaner energy production. The facility meets National Ambient Air Quality Standards that protect public health and the environment and will produce half the carbon dioxide and 90 percent less sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide of a conventional coal-fired power plant. In fact, advanced emissions-control technology makes the plant one of the cleanest and most efficient natural gas power facilities in the United States.
