Shaw receives full notice on new gas-fired facility

Engineering procurement and construction services company Shaw has received full notice to proceed on a new gas-fired facility at Duke Energy’s Dan River Steam Station in North Carolina, US.

Scheduled to begin operation in late 2012, the new 620MW natural-gas-fired combined-cycle generating unit will replace two older units at the facility.

At the peak of construction, the project will employ more than 400 workers.
