Fluor Corporation announced that the company signed a memorandum of understanding with Clean Energy Future LLC to provide development support for the Trumbull and Oregon Energy Centers natural gas, combined-cycle stations in Ohio.
As part of the agreement, Fluor will provide initial permitting and development support services for the projects. After the projects have received all permits and regulatory and financial approvals, Fluor will provide engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for both of the power stations.
“We are honored to be selected by Clean Energy Future for this new natural gas development,” said Chris Tye, president of Fluor’s Power business line. “Fluor is a leader in the gas-fueled business demonstrated by the design and build of nearly 50,000 megawatts of gas-fueled power stations over the past 20 years.”
Fluor will support permitting and project development over the next year with construction scheduled to begin in early 2018. The projects are currently planned to begin commercial operations in 2020.
