GE (NYSE: GE) said it has been selected as the technology provider for a 540 MW combined-cycle power plant near Marble Falls, Texas. When the plant begins commercial operation, expected in the summer of 2014, GE said it will be the first combined-cycle plant in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) region that meets the latest Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) greenhouse gas regulations.
GE will supply two frame 7FA gas turbine-generators in a two-on-one combined-cycle plant, along with installation and commissioning and technical assistance, to Fluor Corp. (NYSE: FLR), the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the Ferguson Replacement Project.
The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) will own and operate the new 540 MW facility, which is replacing the 420 MW, 37-year-old Thomas C. Ferguson Power Plant at the site.
