Lockwood Greene Awarded Power Project

Lockwood Greene today announced the award of a contract to engineer, procure and construct (EPC) a power plant for Constellation Power Source in Brevard County, Florida. The Constellation Power Source plant is being built for the Oleander Power Project Limited Partnership by J.A. Jones E&C, a Lockwood Greene subsidiary. The project value was not disclosed.
Lockwood Greene is charged with developing a high-efficiency, simple-cycle peaking station that will consist of four GE Frame 7FA gas turbine generator sets (GTG) with the capability of expansion to a five-unit site. The plant will be designed with the ability to operate with two separate fuel sources, natural gas and No. 2 fuel oil. The expected commercial operation of the facility is scheduled for June 2002. Constellation Power Source is an affiliate of Constellation Energy Group, a Baltimore-based holding company with energy-related businesses focused mostly on power marketing, generation and portfolio management. The project continues Lockwood Greene and its affiliate companies’ strong presence in Florida. With more than 3,000 MW previously constructed in Florida, and 2,600 MW under construction, Lockwood Greene is demonstrating the ability to manage the growing risk of labor uncertainty in the Southeast. Lockwood Greene is a global business partner for engineering and construction serving power, manufacturing, process and institutional clients. Founded in 1832 with headquarters in Spartanburg, SC/USA, the company employs more than 3,400 professionals in more than 40 offices worldwide. As an operating unit of J.A. Jones, Inc., Lockwood Greene also provides the entire life cycle spectrum of services from project development through operations and maintenance services. The company website is at www.lg.com.
