Bechtel has been selected by Carroll County Energy LLC, an affiliate of Advanced Power, to build a 700 megawatt natural gas-fired combined-cycle generating facility in Carroll County, Ohio. Bechtel will be responsible for engineering, procurement, construction and start-up of the Carroll County Energy Facility, which will use advanced emissions-control technology and will be one of the cleanest and most efficient plants in the nation.
"We are proud to be working with Carroll County Energy LLC to help deliver this new facility.
