Projects of the Year award finalists and announced the 2006 winners. Each year, the magazine recognizes some of the world’s best power projects from four major categories: Best Coal-fired Project, Best Nuclear Project, Best Gas-fired Project and Best Renewable/Sustainable Energy Project. The awards recognize not only the project owners, but also the major contractors that were essential to the projects’ successes.
In past years, the awards have been presented during POWER-GEN International’s Keynote Session. This year, however, a more formal setting, the Power Engineering Projects of the Year Awards Banquet, was selected for the award presentations.
Due to the number of high-quality entries received this year, the Power Engineering magazine editors chose to recognize one winner and one honorable mention recipient in each category.
