Description

Corval Group was the EPC Contractor for the design, construction and start-up of 150 MW natural gas-fired power plant. The plant consists of three Pratt & Whitney FT8-3 Swiftpac combustion turbines and has diesel fuel as a back-up. The facility provides “regulation” capability to the electrical grid, adjusting its power output every 10 seconds, balancing out the variable output from the wind turbines in the area.
