CH2M HILL Lands $100 Million Nevada Power Project


CH2M HILL announced today it has been awarded a $100 million engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) project by Nevada Power Company for its new Clark Station power generating plant in Henderson, Nevada. CH2M HILL will provide complete engineering, balance-of-plant procurement and construction for the project.

“Coming on the heels of the successfully completed Harry Allen station project, we are pleased to continue our successful teaming relationship with Nevada Power on this new project,” said Don Zabilansky, president of CH2M HILL’s power business.

Construction is scheduled to begin June 1, 2007, with substantial completion expected by July 2008. The peak construction work force is expected to be about 150 craft laborers.

As the single-source EPC contractor, CH2M HILL has developed the project schedule based on an integrated EPC approach, with the start-up and construction staff intimately involved with the upfront engineering effort. The new generating station will use 12 Pratt & Whitney FT8 gas turbines with selective catalyst reduction control.

CH2M HILL was recently awarded with the Minnesota Department of Labor’s OSHA Safety Star (MNSTAR) for exemplary safety performance at its ongoing High Bridge power plant construction project for Xcel Energy in St. Paul, Minnesota. CH2M HILL has received five OSHA voluntary protection program Stars for the firm’s safety performance.

CH2M HILL is currently designing and building the Tracy 500 megawatt combined cycle power plant for Sierra Pacific Resources. Sierra Pacific Resources is the parent company of Nevada Power.
CH2M HILL was also recognized by Power Engineering magazine as the EPC contractor for a “Power Plant of the Year” award for its performance at Nevada Power’s Silverhawk Power station in Las Vegas.
