Gas-fired combined cycle unit substantially completed

The Shaw Group Inc. (NYSE: SHAW) has achieved substantial completion of a 500 MW nominal combined-cycle natural gas-fired plant for NV Energy at the existing Harry Allen Generating Station. The plant has been released to the owner for commercial operation.

NV Energy awarded Shaw with the engineering, procurement and construction contract in 2008 and began construction in 2009. As part of substantial completion, Shaw completed commissioning and testing of the units in April. All performance and environmental guarantees were achieved and verified during the testing period.

The two new combustion turbine generators work with two heat recovery steam generators that capture waste heat and convert it to steam to power a single steam turbine generator. The plant uses a dry cooling system that helps to produce electricity by using only a fraction of the water required by other similar facilities.
