B&W Begins Work On Exelon Power Plant Projects
HOUSTON, Texas—Sept.12, 2016—B&W Energy Services today announced their partnership with Zachry on two Exelon Power Plant Projects: Exelon’s Colorado Bend Generating Station in Wharton, Texas and Wolf Hollow Generating Station in Granbury, Texas. B&W will provide Steam Blow and Lube Oil Flushing Services. Engineering work began immediately, and the service work will start this Fall.
The projects involve construction of a new low-carbon, combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT), and the new units will be one of the most environmentally friendly and efficient CCGTs in the state and the nation. Using General Electric’s most advanced gas turbine technology (H-Class Turbines) and an air-cooled condenser system eliminates the use of water to cool the unit. The H-Class Turbines will be the first set of this kind in the US.
“Both Exelon Power Plant Projects are great for our expanding project portfolio,” said Joel Babin, Chief Operating Officer at B&W Energy Services. “It’s an honor to be a part of such innovative technology and we look forward to the opportunity of working on H-Class Turbines in the future,” Babin added.
Construction of the new units is a part of Exelon Generation’s ongoing growth strategy and will allow the company to offer more low-carbon electricity to the growing Texas Market. B&W Energy Services is proud to be involved with such a revolutionary project and is excited to add each to their growing portfolio.
Both units are expected to achieve commercial operation in 2017.
