Bechtel gas power plant will require 700 construction workers

CARROLL COUNTY, Ohio — Bechtel has begun work on a natural gas-fired power plant in Carroll County. During peak construction, it will require about 700 workers.

Bechtel, a global leader in the design and execution of complex power projects, is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and start-up of the 700-megawatt Carroll County Energy Facility, which will generate energy for more than 740,000 homes in the region. The plant is expected to start commercial operations in 2017.

“We will be using advanced emissions-control technology to make this plant one of the cleanest and most efficient natural gas power facilities in the United States,” said Scott Osborne, general manager, power at Bechtel. “This project continues our long history of delivering infrastructure projects in Ohio — with the support of skilled local workers — and we have already awarded $15 million worth of contracts to local firms.”

During construction, Bechtel will use local companies to provide services and materials.
