Duke/Fluor Daniel wins contract for New Jersey power plant

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Sept. 25, 2000—Duke/Fluor Daniel has been awarded a contract by PSEG Power LLC. to perform engineering and procurement services for a 500 MW, natural gas-fired, combined-cycle power generation facility at PSEG Power's Bergen Generating Station in Ridgefield, N.J. The Bergen 2 Project is targeted for completion June 2002.

Duke/Fluor Daniel's services will encompass all major plant components for Bergen 2, including turbine generators and emission-control equipment. In addition, the new plant's control system will be integrated with that of the existing unit 1. The new facility is based on Duke/Fluor Daniel's two-on-one "reference plant design" and will include selective catalytic reduction and low-nitrogen oxide burners in the GE 7FA combustion turbines to reduce NOx emissions, and a "CO catalyst" to reduce carbon monoxide emissions.

"Bergen 2 is really chapter two in a very good story," said Clarence Ray, Duke/Fluor Daniel president and CEO. "It continues a relationship begun in the 1990s when we provided similar services for the repowering of Bergen Generating Station, effectively integrating combined-cycle technology with existing steam technology. Bergen 2 provides our companies another opportunity to work together to make this station one of the premier power plants serving the Pennsylvania-New Jersey-Maryland Interconnection."

"Duke/Fluor Daniel's experience and working relationship with us will make the difference on this project," said Robert W. Metcalfe, PSEG Power LLC vice president of development. "Their proven expertise with combined-cycle generation is known throughout the industry. But they also have been key to such advances as our use of treated waste water for cooling water make-up, and a plant design that eliminates the need for us to take water from the Hackensack River or to discharge effluent into it. PSEG Power is committed to environmental leadership, and Duke/Fluor Daniel is integral to achieving that."
