Concord Engineering Wins Owner’s Engineer Contract for PSEG Keys Energy Center
By Business Wire News
Concord Engineering was recently selected by PSEG as their Owner’s Engineer for a 755 MW power plant through a competitive bidding process between multiple firms based on its experienced combined-cycle engineering staff and the company’s success with previous PSEG projects. Concord will be onsite throughout both the project’s construction and start-up phases.
The PSEG Keys Energy Center, located in Prince George’s County Maryland, will add needed capacity and energy to the state of Maryland and the surrounding region and will be completed in May of 2018. The $825 – $875 million investment will supply PJM through the Potomac Electric Power Company’s (PEPCO) 500 kV transmission system with enough clean, efficient, and reliable energy to power 500,000 homes.
PSEG will oversee construction, operate and maintain the combined-cycle plant that features two gas-fired turbines and one steam turbine. The energy center will use state-of-the-art generating technology, including a full complement of emissions controls and run on clean, efficient natural gas.
Said Kevin Best, Concord’s project manager, “We are thrilled to support PSEG Power in their engineering needs as they continue their commitment to clean energy and regional economic growth.”
