Bechtel, a global leader in engineering, procurement and construction, has been selected by South Field Energy LLC to design and build a combined-cycle facility in Columbiana County, Ohio, that will deliver a clean, reliable and efficient source of energy to more than one million homes.

Bechtel has received approval to begin construction immediately on the 1,182-megawatt South Field Energy facility. The peak construction phase is expected to create approximately 1,000 jobs. The facility is scheduled to enter commercial operation in 2021.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to deliver cleaner, reliable energy to the Columbiana, Ohio community,” said Kelvin Sims, operations manager of Bechtel's global Infrastructure business. “Our experience in delivering combined-cycle facilities along with our continued collaboration with Advanced Power will ensure that this project reflects the best of innovation.”

Bechtel will be responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of the electric generating facility, which will use General Electric power generation equipment including two natural gas turbines, each paired with a heat recovery steam generator and steam turbine generator. Bechtel Enterprises partnered with Advanced Power to develop the project.

The facility is the second major project in Ohio for the Bechtel-Advanced Power team, who completed the Carroll County Energy Facility in December 2017. The team is also constructing the Cricket Valley Energy Center, a natural gas-fired, combined-cycle power facility in Dover, N.Y.

“We are proud to have developed the South Field Energy facility, our second major project in Ohio,” said Advanced Power's CEO, Thomas Spang. “The project will create jobs and bring significant economic benefits to the Village of Wellsville, Columbiana County and the State.”
