CB&I breaks ground on 980-MW La. combined-cycle project

Construction work has started at Entergy Louisiana LLC-owned St. Charles Power Station, a 980-MW, combined-cycle power project in Louisiana.

Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. NV is providing engineering, procurement and construction services for the planned natural gas-fired project that will help meet the Entergy Corp. subsidiary's need for up to 2,100 MW of capacity by 2020.

The Louisiana Public Service Commission in November 2016 approved Entergy Louisiana's request to build the approximately $869 million plant. Gulf South Pipeline Co. LP's 133,333-Dth/d St. Charles Parish natural gas pipeline expansion project would provide service to the power project, which is expected to go online in June 2019.

The plant will be on the site of the utility's existing Little Gypsy facility and will feature advanced-class turbines for their efficiency and ability to meet strict emission regulations, CB&I said in a Jan. 31 release.

CB&I previously completed the 560-MW Ninemile 6 combined-cycle, natural gas-fired unit in Westwego, La., for Entergy Louisiana.
