The Shaw Group Inc. received full notice to proceed on a 620 MW natural gas-fired combined-cycle power plant at Duke Energy's Dan River Steam Station in North Carolina.
In March 2010, Duke awarded Shaw an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services contract for the construction of the new facility, and Shaw began working under a limited notice to proceed.
The unit will replace two older units at the plant and is scheduled to begin operation in late 2012.
Shaw is also constructing a new 620 MW gas-fired unit at Duke's Buck Steam Station in North Carolina, which is scheduled for completion in late 2011.
