Wood Group To Help Convert Tracy Peaker Plant To Combined Cycle Operation
Wood Group GTS has received an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract, valued at US$152 million (€109.4 million), from GWF Energy LLC to construct and commission the conversion of the Tracy Peaker Plant in Tracy, California, U.S.A.
The project will convert the existing facility, which consists of two GE Frame 7EA gas turbine generators, to combined cycle operation through the turnkey design and installation of two heat recovery steam generators and a single steam turbine generator, an air cooled condenser and related balance of plant equipment.
The conversion is part of a new power purchase agreement with Pacific Gas & Electric Co. When finished, the 336 MW plant will offer flexible electric generating capacity for Pacific Gas & Electric and its customers.
