The Newark Energy Center will provide New Jersey with more flexible and reliable power, reducing the region’s reliance on older, less efficient plants.
Our joint venture with Skanska is providing engineering, procurement, start-up and commissioning services for the Newark Energy Center in New Jersey. Scheduled to start up in 2015, the 655-MW gas-fired combined cycle power plant will be one of the cleanest of its kind in the United States.
Reduced starting emissions
The new plant will use wastewater and the latest General Electric F-class 5-series combustion gas turbines to generate reliable and efficient power. These gas turbines can switch on quickly, producing fewer emissions at start-up. Ultimately, the plant will reduce the region’s reliance on older, less efficient power plants with higher emissions.
Reliable power, reliable jobs
The Newark Energy Center will provide reliable power to 700,000 homes via the regional grid. The project employs more than 700 construction workers and generates tax revenues for the city of Newark.
