Black & Veatch Chosen for EPC of PSEG's Sewaren 7 Project

PSEG Power has chosen Black & Veatch to perform engineering, procurement services and construction management (EpCM) for its new 540-MW Sewaren 7 combined-cycle power plant in Woodbridge, New Jersey.

Construction is set to begin in 2016 and the plant is expected to deliver power to the PJM market by summer 2018.

Black & Veatch is a global leader in bringing advanced combined-cycle power projects online,” said Dean Oskvig, Black & Veatch’s energy business president.  “Given the demands of the PJM market, schedule and execution are critical to the success of this project.  When completed, Sewaren 7 will serve as a highly efficient, reliable power source within PJM, the nation’s largest wholesale energy market.”

Not only will the more than $600 million power plant feature GE’s high-efficiency H-class combustion turbine, it’s the first such turbine with dual-fuel capability, allowing for power generation using ultra-low sulfur distillate fuel in the event of a natural gas shortage.

“Sewaren 7 represents an important investment by PSEG in New Jersey’s power landscape,” said Rich Lopriore, PSEG Fossil president.  “Under PJM’s new capacity performance standards, it’s more important than ever to provide a high level of reliability.”
