American Electric Technologies Inc. (AETI) has announced its business M&I Electric was chosen to provide a turnkey power delivery solution for a new 700-MW natural gas-fired, combined-cycle project in the U.S. Using two natural gas turbines and a steam turbine, the undisclosed facility facility will provide clean and reliable base load power.
The $7 million contract is M&I Electric’s first order from a major engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm. AETI says the company was chosen based on its ability to provide customized and integrated Power Distribution Centers (PDCs) within a short-cycle delivery time.
“We are very pleased to have been selected to provide power delivery systems to enable this new power generation facility,” said Charles Dauber, AETI president and CEO. “This project exemplifies our mission of Empowering EnergyTM and shows progress in our growth strategy of working with owners and EPC firms within the power generation segment of the global energy industry.”
M&I’s turnkey solution includes custom-designed low and medium voltage power distribution switchgear and low and medium voltage motor control centers, all deployed within M&I’s custom built, climate-controlled PDCs.
