URS Corp. won a contract from Hoosier Energy Rural Electric Co-op Inc. to provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services to upgrade existing flue gas desulfurization systems at Hoosier Energy’s 1,000 MW Merom coal-fired power plant in Indiana.
The upgrade is scheduled to be completed by the summer of 2013.
In July 2010, the Merom plant was one of two Hoosier plants that had to install and upgrade pollutioncontrol technology as part of a settlement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for violating the Agency’s Clean Air Act. Hoosier also had to pay a $950,000 civil fine as part of the settlement.
