 Western Energy Partners to develop gas, solar project in New Mexico

Western Energy Partners, an energy development company, announced plans to develop, permit, construct and operate a 750-MW electricity generation project, near Waterflow, New Mexico.

The Clean Path Energy Center will consist of a 680-MW natural gas combined-cycle plant, and a 70-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant. The project will help fill the gap of generation loss due to the retirement of coal-fired power plants located in the Four Corners and Desert Southwest region.

The facility is expected to create approximately 800 jobs during peak construction, and 30 full-time positions once the facility is operational. Completion of the project is expected in mid-2019.

SNC-Lavalin Inc. will serve as the engineering, construction and procurement (EPC) contractor for the project’s combined-cycle power block, as well as support project development. Stonepeak Partners will also  provide project development support.
