US-based infrastructure firm AECOM has secured an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the $700M Alliant Energy Riverside Energy Center expansion project in Wisconsin, US.
AECOM will be responsible for the design, supply, install and start-up of a 2x1 gas-fired combined cycle.
The power plant will use gas-fired combustion turbine technology to produce about 700MW of electricity for Alliant Energy customers in Wisconsin.
AECOM’s chairman and CEO Michael Burke said: “We’re pleased to build the next-generation power plant that will enable Alliant Energy to keep delivering efficient and cost effective energy to thousands of customers and businesses.
“This project taps an experienced, talented team unrivaled in our industry for delivering energy efficient power generation sites across the country.”
The project is expected to be complete by early-2020.
