Bechtel will construct a natural gas-fired combined-cycle generating facility in Carroll County, Ohio under a contract with Carroll County Energy LLC, an Advanced Power affiliate.
The company will oversee the engineering, procurement and start-up work on the 700-megawatt power plant that Bechtel said Wednesday will use emissions-control technology.
Carroll County Energy plans to open the plant for commercial operation in 2017.
Scott Osborne, operations manager for power at Bechtel, said the company intends for the facility to “meet the growing energy needs of the region.“
The power plant will work to supply electricity to more than 740,000 households in the region once completed.
