Bechtel-Siemens Consortium Takes Stonewall Energy Project to Provide Electricity
FREDERICK, MD: Bechtel – an engineering, procurement and construction company – and Siemens announce that the Bechtel-Siemens consortium will be delivering the Stonewall Energy Project, a 778-megawatt facility with advanced emissions-control technology, to build a natural gas-fueled, combined-cycle power plant in Loudoun County, Virginia.
Bechtel will facilitate project management, engineering, procurement, construction and startup services whereas Siemens will be installing natural gas and steam turbines, generators and waste-heat-recovery boilers. The station will be utilizing the municipal wastewater from the town so as to use it for cooling the plant and maintaining the Commonwealth’s natural supply of drinking water. The company will build the facility along with existing transmission lines.
Mary McLaughlin, President of Bechtel’s thermal power business line, states that the plant will generate electricity for 778,000 homes and later, it will increase the power and reliability of power to the region.
