IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation was issued a notice to proceed by LCRA to build a new natural gas-fired power plant in Horseshoe Bay, Texas. LCRA’s Ferguson Replacement project, a 540-megawatt combined-cycle power plant, received the required air permits from Texas commission on environmental quality and the US Environmental Protection Agency. Fluor will book the undisclosed contract value into backlog in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Fluor is providing engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the project. The engineering and procurement phase, which will last for several months, is currently under way. The design for the plant incorporates new technology, including environmental controls, while providing a new clean energy source for Texas residents.

“We are delighted LCRA has received the required air permits and has given Fluor a full notice to proceed on this new clean energy project in Texas,” said Dave Dunning, President, Power Group, Fluor.

“This is a firm commitment from LCRA that we are moving forward with this advantageous project. Our customers will benefit from our ability to better manage costs with a plant that will use about 35 to 40 per cent less fuel than traditional gas-fired plants and the community will benefit from the latest environmental controls and a contribution to the local economy with the plant’s construction,” said Becky Motal, General Manager, LCRA.
