Quanta Power Generation, a Quanta Services company (NYSE: PWR), has been selected  to build a 120 megawatt combined cycle thermal power plant in Alaska. Anchorage Municipal Light & Power, a publicly owned utility, has contracted Quanta for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the George M. Sullivan Plant 2 Generation Replacement Project.

"With the Quanta team, we are confident and are looking forward to building a 'flagship' power generation plant that proves to be the most cost effective and energy efficient plant in Alaska," said Eugene Ori, project manager.

Engineering and procurement activities will begin soon and construction of the plant is expected to be complete in September 2016. The facility is designed in a 2x1 combined-cycle configuration and will utilize GE LM6000 combustion turbine technology.|

"Quanta has operated in Alaska for several decades and brings a strong local presence with experience to manage the weather and logistical challenges of the area," said Jim O'Neil, president and chief executive officer of Quanta Services.

Quanta said the new plant is expected to achieve significant reductions in natural gas use and emissions, while improving the heating of the municipal water supply and providing additional generation capacity to meet Anchorage's power needs.
